I have thought about this sometimes. The time I thought about this the most was just after I had come to the conclusion that I wasn't a Christian - and I was teaching Relief Society (mostly via Zoom) and running Achievement Days for the 8-12 year old girls in my branch - and I suck at lying or traditional social skills. Here are some themes that helped me the most.
CAVEAT: 1/2 my family are introverts that border on happy hermits, I can go either way, and my other daughter needs at least 6 hours of peopling a day (she would prefer 20 out of 24 hours a day of being social - but we insist on 8-10 hours of sleep, a few hours of basic life stuff too). Any social stuff I was doing was either going to require my husband to sit on our kids properly while I was out, or required me to take them with me and deal with the consequences of variable levels of social skills to complicate the situation.
A) Planning to Control the Situation - I could plan ahead, while the people who I talked to were reacting in real time. I would plan out possible conversation points, meaningful questions I could ask people about themselves and their lives. I planned out and thought through probable conversation points with my branch president. I planned charitable exit statements from awkward, unnecessary conversations. Any conversations about my faith transition were on my terms. No matter how you looked at it, my faith transition in its full glory would "ambush" the traditional believers and threaten their faith on some level. I was shifting from being one of the majority to a minority in thinking any time I joined that community in real time.
B)Perspective- I refused to give people the opportunity to shame me/show contempt towards me in conversation with me [Roy's "Hopeful Penitent" scripts were a helpful example btw - I can hope that there is a force greater than all of us that isn't interested in hurting us and is hopefully interested in blessing and teaching us.]. This was reassuring to me (I think in words), and helped me to be compassionate towards those that my faith transition was ambushing. I also refused to shame myself or show contempt towards myself for my faith transition - it was what it was, and it was my experience to wring meaning from. I could talk through stuff with people on some levels, but at the end of the day - I could only hold myself accountable for how I reacted to the reactions of others and whether the choices I made were in line with being charitable towards others and in line with my personal values. I often mentally compared myself to "Adam" from the story of Adam and Eve. Adam didn't expect what the world was like, but after the metaphorical dust settled, Adam got to work building a life and waiting for God to show up. Adam built an alter - opened a divine channel with God and gave God the chance to show up... before getting to work tending fields and raising children - his life's work (literally). On many levels, I did the best I could to "build" and "maintain the alter" (the divine connection to God) in ways that worked for me - and then I got on with my life's work. I am looking for "the further light and knowledge" that I assume/trust God has out there for me - and "tilling the fields" and working on values that God and I theoretically share like "Hope" and "Charity".
C) Connection & Common Ground - I can (and do) find connection and common ground with branch members in my area. "Charity" was a topic that I talked a lot about and tried to practice in an inclusive way. "Charity" was something useful for those that I worked with too - being a gospel principle for them and a core personal value for me gave us moments of connection and common ground. Again, I tried to be connective in each interaction to the degree that I had resources available to do so.
D) Diversification & Education - During this time period, I wound up completing my degree for Business Administration - Healthcare management, and learned a ton (mostly hands on) about various topics in fields of Individual Advocacy/Case Management, Human Development (mostly cognitive. psychology, child development and neurodiversity), Autoimmune disorders/dis-regulation (sugar really does a number on the system over time) [NOTE: If you want to feel miserable, don't move around enough, overconsume sugar and starches, deflect instead of holding yourself accountable and changing your choices - that'll do it within 2 months to 5 years], History (my husband finished his BA in History this year), with a splattering of information on Genetics and Epigenetics (the study of environmental "triggers" that seem to turn specific genes off and on), and Trauma. Everything that I learned I could see how it fit in with church teachings (usually not in the standard gospel teachings way).
E) Counseling - I was in counseling for other aspects of my life. But my faith transition impacted my marriage and how I co-raise our children - having someone to listen and provide general assistance in perspective and scripts for "being nice to myself and others" was useful.
