Self-Care Resources for Trans Women of Color


During the endless process of transition, all trans women do need to take care of their mental, emotional and physical health. One coping resource is increasing self-care. One might find ways to gain self-esteem, motivation, self-awareness within herself as well as getting involved in a community and seeking support from professionals. Self-care encourages you to explore other parts of your identity, amplify self-expression, get advice, find inspiration, discover role models, and even make friends. Yet, drawing attention to individual differences and the variety of experiences, online sources might not provide much specific guidance or strategies that would apply to everybody.  Self- care is an important concept not only to soothe and protect individuals but also to help them becoming better and happier versions of themselves.
