Shortcuts to a Successful Gender Transition
I often mention a complete and successful gender transition takes ten years. However, I’ve witnessed a very small handful of transsexual women shorten this horizon to only a few years. That’s very rare and requires a handful of essential elements to occur. Most successful transitions - including my own - take much longer. Even more - eventually end up mired as half-done.
To pull-off more rapid success, four key elements must come into play together. If you have only two versus all four? Your success will require more time accordingly:
An Existing Career You Can Stay During Transition
Transition costs are expensive. Plus, it’s harder to get a decent job as a transitioning trans-woman. Thus, obviously gals who were abler to keep and maintain their pre-transition employment have a leg-u on others that don’t.
Not only does such a platform provided needed can but it also causes these same gals to improve more rapidly by constantly testing and improving their skills in a daily non-trans environment.
Very Supportive Friends and Family
The sense of isolation and loneliness following transition is one of the most challenging aspects of this journey. Rebuilding a basis where this doesn’t occur takes a long time: often many years.
The handful of gals with shorter time frames for success already had supportive family, friends and co-workers - sometimes even such spouses. This is often a reflection of how you lived your entire life. Don’t feel bad if you’re amongst the group that doesn’t start with such support - most of us don’t! Alas, it takes many years to rebuild this essential human infrastructure.
A Calm Girl-Like Approach to Transition and Life
The trans-women who rebuilt a high-quality post-transition life in the fastest time were much calmer and relaxed about their female life than most of us. Every one I witnessed weren’t flashy or very ego-centric.
Also, all of them already logged hundreds of hours in public as a girl. I’m not talking about such time at transgender gatherings or hanging out with transgender friends, I’m talking about living and functioning as a female on your own and/or with non-trans friends.
