Switching around personalities and/or beliefs is exhausting and messy. One minute you’re in the workplace, trying your hardest to be who your coworkers think you are: smart, not too bossy, not too loud. The next you’re visiting family, trying to tuck away your newfound beliefs, laughing at jokes that you definitely don’t think are funny, and praying that they’ll believe you when you lie about who you’ve been dating. The truth? You do not have to compartmentalize who you are for the sake of acceptance.
