National Coming Out Day
Today is National Coming Out Day so what better day to share my very first post!
I was about 17 when I first came out (over 10 years ago now). I told a select few friends at first, but the defining memory I hold dear to me is huddled on the floor of a toilet cubicle on a Friday night out crying with my best friend Nicole. She couldn't be happier for me and that made me so happy 💜 This gave me the courage to tell my family and live life happily as the true me.
If you're planning on coming out today, my advice would be to come out to yourself first. Once you've truly accepted it yourself, it will be easier to tell the people you love.
Tell the people closest to you who you know you can trust.
"Once you accept and love yourself, you allow the world to accept and love you"
Happy National Coming Out Day!
