A beautiful lady has shared life lessons she learnt after she came out of the closet and revealed that she is a lesbian.
The young lady identified as Pamela Adie shared a post on her Facebook page explaining the two lessons she learnt after she came out of the closet.
Adie who is an advocate in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community expressed that she realised she was on her own.
She noted that few family members and friends supported her decision to be openly lesbian.
According to her, many of those friends and family member who refused to support her decision are silent till date.
Adie wrote: “The first thing I learned is that I’m on my own. It took me a while to realize this because I kept expecting and waiting on family and friends to show support, give approval, and accept me.
Very few did. The others remained silent. And they’re still silent till today because neither has bothered to break the silence.”
The young lady noted that the second lesson she learnt was to always go out and get whatever she wants because nobody owes her anything.
She said: “The second lesson is that nobody owes me anything. There’s a tendency to feel entitled to peoples love, acceptance, and financial resources based on their supposed role in our lives...mother, father, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, cousin, niece, bestie, friend, etc. Nothing could be more false. You’re not entitled to anything. You want something, work hard for it. Bear the consequences. “
Adie further added that she has been able to appreciate her life and live the way she wants since she learnt the two lessons.

“The sooner I started to feel less entitled, the happier I became. I engaged with those that wanted to engage, laughed with those that wanted to laugh. If I was in need, I asked. If I got, I appreciated, If I didn’t, no hard feelings. Life continued. That’s how I live my life even now and I’m getting better at it. So, instead of feeling like people owe you anything, work hard on your own and be grateful for life helpers you meet along the way.”
