What does it mean to “come out of the closet”?
Coming out is about being ready, able, and unafraid.
To be who you truly are.
Who you have always been.
To tell people, “This is me.”
“Take it or leave it.”
Hoping those you love will accept you.
Knowing that not all will.
It’s about being tired.
Tired of being something you are not.
Tired of hiding who you are.
Not everyone’s “closet” is the same.
Nor is the experience of exiting said closet.
Closets come in different shapes and sizes.
Have different contents.
Some feel safer than others.
Most are dark and lonely.
Some closets are known.
Or rather denied their existence.
Be who you are.
Come out and be with your people.
