"I had underestimated the severe emotional toll of hiding an important part of
my authentic self, my life partner. I had miscalculated the exhaustion that
would come from having to think carefully about every look and touch that he
and I might venture to share. I had taken too lightly how passing sends
implicit internal messages that one's relationship is wrong. I had undervalued
the freedom I had, to some extent, come to take for granted."
