Coming out was the hardest part of my transition. First to my ex, and several years later to my parents, when I was pretty much convinced to start transition. And since my parents are divorced, I had to do it twice. With my mom there was no problem at all, she was understanding and comforting right from the start. But my dad has a weird way of dealing with conflict, he counterattacks with jokes and humor, even if it’s completely unfitting. And that was a embarrassing moment for me, I felt ridiculous. He also tried to convince me of leaving all my feelings behind, to try to cope with my dysphoria. But once we had a conversation with the psychologist and he understood everything, he also became fully supportive of the transition.
