Coming out can feel a little like jumping off a cliff. Not only is it scary and risky, but while closeted at least some piece of you remains separate from the world. Standing apart. Struggling to protect your secret. Isolated. Hanging on for dear life. Desperately afraid someone will see the real you. 😔
But it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s not all or nothing. The truth is, once you get started, you will be coming out for the rest of your life. On a whole variety of topics. ❤️
Coming out is a rewarding process, even with all the risks. You will experience huge benefits with each person you come out to. You will feel more seen. More loved. More integrated and whole. More congruent. 🔥
And that means…
❤️❤️YOU CAN MOVE AT YOUR OWN PACE❤️❤️
There’s no rush. You can do what feels right for you. Keep yourself safe. And trust your stories to those who have earned it.
And if you’re like me, once you get started, you won’t want to stop. You will fall so in love with your soul that you will want to be seen by everyone you know. You will want to shout it from the rooftops! 🔥 🔥 🔥
Coming out is your gift to the world, because you are revealing more of yourself. And just being authentically and unapologetically you is the greatest gift you have!
Friday, October 11 is National Coming Out Day. I want you to think of someone new that you can come out to, about any piece of yourself that you have been hiding…
