I do remember very significant points in my life, knowing the risks and costs, where I had to make the very specific decision to be true. They were always very scary times for me because I don't like loss. I don't like pain. I guess for me I was more afraid of the consequences of not being true than I was of the consequences of living a lie.
But I always recommend that people wait until they are ready to take this step. It shouldn't be done without forethought, without making the calculations, because for some of us the risks and costs are too severe, sudden, and great.
