Coming out was a virtuous experience. I am very happy that my superior took my news kindly and with overwhelming sense of understanding. My belief that people are naturally good and that everything always turns out all right in the end was reinforced.
Coming out was just one of the things I’ve planned.
The other night, I sent my male boss an email expressing my desire to resign from my post as Gallery Manager. Being a man of immense wisdom, he expressed his sincerest understanding of my need to leave. My female boss followed his suite. I would love to make my exit sooner but as a professional requirement, I should wait until they find my replacement and that responsibilities should be smoothly turned over.
Consciously deciding to make a change in our lives and moving on is part of our nature as humans. We should not battle against the natural flow. Things happen for a reason and the reason, most of the time, if not always, is for the greater good. Experiences teaches us a lot of things, mostly how to improve ourselves and how to live a better life.
My resignation is just the second bullet on my list. I have a few more coming up. I will share it in due time. For now, I am slowly shedding the outer covering that I’ve made to become my comfort blanket. I will be bare soon and this gives me another opportunity to wrap my self tighter and more comfortably with new experiences.
All of these changes are somewhat overwhelming but I am definite that it’s for my own good. I am sure I will be more mature and wiser with my dealings this time. And that’s the cherry on top of the ice cream.
I am back to my usual, jovial self. I bid goodbye to the drama for now.
It’s time to keep moving forward.
