The process of growing up and maturing is one of integration. We are moving toward greater wholeness, integrating all the aspects of ourselves on our path to inner peace and joy. This is what the process of coming out is about. We are stepping onto the path on inner truth, choosing to live a life of integrity. Some of us have adopted negative social or religious beliefs about sexuality and sexual orientation while growing up. Some of us believe that our family, friends and the world could never accept us as we are. These fears and negative beliefs are likely to hinder your efforts toward happiness and inner truth, making the two seem mutually exclusive. The aim of Coming Out counseling is to help you overcome these obstacles on your path toward integrity, inner truth and happiness.
