Dealing with... Family things...

Postby Zedarius » Mon Apr 16, 2018 6:51 am

Hello all,
Usually I put most things (especially "me" things) in my running post. However I think this particular thing/issue needs is own post, and I have no idea how to bring this to some family members.

So firstly, my father and step mother are supportive, and have been great for the most part. With my step mother being the better of the two. And this is where the issue lies.

My father although supportive, does say some things (not meant to be bad, negative, or for [that] purpose).
Its not all the time, just every now and then, and it usually brings me down, or can make my dysphoria worse...

Not meant to be the way they are, but... (I'm working on speaking with both about it, it's just kind of hard...). They are kind of things along the lines of "I don't see it" (me being trans), "you don't act masculine/male enough, as [other] trans people", "you don't act like [this] trans person/people" and "I/we didn't see anything (signs, etc.), like [the family] of [this] trans person".

It can really get me down, and often makes me feel like I'm not, or ever going to be trans enough to do the things I know I need to start working towards for my own future and, mental and physical health.

I'm not exactly looking for help or advice (though if you have any, I'd be grateful). It's more I need to put this somewhere, so it's not, all 100% of it, stuck in my head. (It will still be in my head, but maybe not as bad as before)
A body is just a body, they change a multitude of times over someone's life-span...
