Transition: A change from one state or condition to another.
The current cultural zeitgeist suggests the word relates to issues of gender, but the truth is we are all in a constant state of flux, moving from one state to another.
Sometimes we’re aware of it; sometimes we’re not. Sometimes it’s a choice, and sometimes life thrusts us from one state to another whether we want to or not.
Note: I am transitioning from who I was to who I will be. I have some agency in the matter, or at least I think I do.
But perhaps not.
