I know I've struggled with this. Many people in my family who I grew up with have chosen to not accept my transition. It can be hard. There is some good advice is this short article, the only thing I'd add is to try to be understanding. We transition and want everyone to simy go on with us. You may see things like you are still rhe same person, or well now you have a daighter (or son) but please understand its sometimes more complicated. Give your loved one time to grieve in a way for the loss, and be as understanding as you expect the to be. This is all still possible while being true to yourself.
