Coming Out Day
Today is National Coming Out Day. I know what being in the closet feels like. Although I am not gay, I know what it is like to be someone who has to hide who they are to make others more comfortable- the result has never been that good -hiding who I am has had a lot of negative effects. I’ve tried to fit in so many places that I clearly didn’t fit into, and I feel that I am finally done with that.
I know now that I cannot control other peoples emotions, only mine. And I know that the truer I am to myself, the happier I am.
