Added to that, it’s not just about being attractive to men. It will also help build your foundation and help you easily live a “full life”. If you’re planning to reach your dreams, keep reading.

Proving Society Wrong

Up to this day, plenty of people still think that transgender women won’t be successful in life. It is an incorrect notion but is still somehow prevalent. Furthermore, many people think that trans women are undateable, not just because of their gender expression, but also because of what society thinks about them.

Proving Society Wrong

Many people still think up to this day that transgender women can only work in the entertainment and beauty industry. While there’s nothing wrong with those industries, their mindsets are incorrect.

Transgender women as of 2021 can be who they are in life. Gone are the days when they’re only expected to do your hair or work on the streets. They can now be doctors, politicians, lawyers, CEOs, etc.

Securing Your Future

A trans woman needs to secure her future. Many trans women are not open to adopting or raising children. Nobody’s going to take care of you when you reach a certain age. When you are financially secure, you will not be seen as a burden by your family and friends.

Please know that this is not to say that you’ll only take care of a child so that someone will take care of you when you’re old. But in reality, this is the norm and something to ponder on.

When you’re financially secure, you won’t have to ask for help from others to keep living in the future. You won’t have to do things that are too hard especially when you hit a reach a number just to survive while counting the days.

Not Depending Financially

In a relationship, the one who makes the money is usually the one who has the say. If you don’t depend on a man to survive, your self-worth will increase. You won’t have fears voicing out your opinions just because this man is providing for you.

Not Depending Financially

If he turns out to be a bad guy in the future, you don’t have to put up with him. You can easily leave him without wondering where you’re going to get your next meal or where you’re going to sleep.

More Independence

If you have a successful career, you will be liberated. This does not mean that you should do whatever you please even if it hurts others in the process.

More Independence

What this means is that you will have more control over certain things like:

  • Decorating the house as you see fit when living in together with your partner
  • Unapologetically reprimand your partner if he’s treating you badly
  • Choosing terms and conditions of how you want your relationship to be
  • Only date the people you’re really attracted to
  • Not say yes all the time and more

Not Walking on Eggshells

All relationships experience disagreements and arguments. Whoever says that they’ve never experienced these with their partner is probably only dating for a week.

Not Walking on Eggshells

If your career is successful, they will listen more to you. People from all walks of life should be respected but the world is not a utopian planet. Successful people earn more respect and they are often heard and understood.

Your partner will have a very hard time belittling you if you have a successful career. Don’t give him the opportunity to do so.
