That’s it.

Honestly, when I think about it, I might have dropped a huge bomb on her, and I knew that she wouldn’t know how to react because what do you say to your best friend whom you’ve known to be a female your whole life and who then comes to you one day telling you she might want to become a boy? Shoot, I wouldn’t know what to say either, so I can’t blame her for the reaction. I still can’t help but think how she feels about the whole situation, though. We haven’t spoken since then because she keeps avoiding me. She doesn’t sit with me at lunch anymore, we don’t walk to class together, and every time I try to talk to her, she just walks away in the opposite direction. I guess I should give her some time to think. This does affect her, too, but I wish we could just communicate. Maybe we’ll talk soon. ~Tia’Marie
