In the months leading up to my coming out as a trans woman, I found myself struggling with the fear that I would lose a lot of people when I came out, because they would not accept me. Writing this piece was part of my process of conquering that fear. I came out while writing this piece, and found that things did not quite unfold the way I expected: rather than relationships ending explosively due to blatant transphobia, much more often my relationships just became more distant because the other person did not know how to be supportive, nor did they care to learn. But regardless, I had to—and did—conquer my fear of losing people who were close to me, by coming to terms with the fact that Sometimes, the bridges burn themselves.
