You love spending time with your most important people. Climbing the corporate ladder is going as you planned. You’re in a stable and loving relationship. Everything is working out. Right?! No, there’s a part of your life that you love, but can’t share with the world. You make excuses as to why you can’t attend family functions. You avoid talking about your personal life with coworkers. Your same-sex partner is no longer okay with being introduced as your “friend.” That’s living a double life. It’s painful and creates overwhelming pressure. It causes broken relationships and leaves you unhappy.
