If there is anything I have learned over the years is that I just have to wait out the learning curve and then the accolades roll in. What is to be determined is my level of satisfaction, not theirs. That kind of thing cannot be discerned for AT LEAST six months.
What has been the most interesting in my transition has been the reactions of people I know personally. Every question that they ask is a reflection of where they are in their lives.
"How excited are you?"
Someone accepting of change or a challenge.
"How do you feel?"
Someone who cares greatly about the people they work with everyday and weighs that interaction highly in life.
"Aren't you scared?"
Someone who is more in love with security of the same thing than of being somewhere detrimental.
The best part? If they feel a certain way when they ask their question they will absolutely not believe the response unless it is the same as their own. And if I do not respond in kind they ask over and over again.
Yes, I am most definitely excited. Oh, I feel fine. No way, why would I be scared?
Done and done.
