Empathy

Very helpful for anyone who is experiencing a family member transitioning. I had no idea of the emotional toll it takes on the person. I now have much greater empathy for the relative of mine who is just starting this process.

Great story for those trying to discover who they are especially when religion is involved. Lisa gave a great little biopic about her life and I would reccommend it to anyone who is either struggling with their gender identity or has a family member going through this.
