Be True To Who You Are

1 min read

There’s something toxic about hiding who you really are.It doesn’t seem to matter *what* it is that you’re hiding, or even whether you’re hiding it from others… or even yourself.Maybe it’s your sexuality. Maybe it’s your orientation. Maybe it’s your passion. Maybe it’s who you love.The thing is, often everyone else already knows (or guesses) what it is you were hiding.But worse, that secret – even if you’re trying to keep it a secret from yourself – will have negative effects on you. Your mental state, even your physical health can be completely derailed by worrying and stress.It’s hard to realize this when you’re still hiding the secret. It seems almost normal, sometimes.But when you realize that you’re simply fighting yourself, when you realize you’re denying who you are, and decide to *stop*….That’s terrifying.But it’s also liberating. It brings clarity.Even if you know that being true to yourself is going to cause you pain.It’s worth it.
