I named this category out of respect for Ash Beckham and her performance at Tedx Boulder. After listening to her monologue, four times in a row, I realized that although I had been living in my own closet. My “closet” was that we were living in an abusive home and I felt to stupid and embarrassed to tell anyone. I finally escaped that closet only to trade it for another. So within this series you will read my about my “Closet” and I think I will leave it at that for now and close with my two favorite quotes from the piece:
“Inside in the dark you can’t tell what color the walls are, you just know what it feels like to live in a closet.”
“At some point in our lives we all live in closets and they may feel safe, or at least safe than what lies on the other side of the door, but I am here to tell you that no matter what your walls are made of a closet is no place to live.”
I would recommend that everyone take the time to listen to this video:
