Coming out: I'm stuck in the closet
How did you 'come out'?
I'm married, have given birth to two incredible children, and have a husband that I adore.
I am also bisexual.
In fact I think I am more gay than straight, which has always been so confusing.
My husband knows that I am bi. My friends have sneaking suspicions and my mother just recently confessed she was convinced that I was a lesbian when I was growing up.
But in reality I am still in the closet. The only person who 100 per cent knows I am not completely straight is my husband. I am so ashamed of that.
I'm ashamed because it's like I don't have the guts to admit who I truly am, and getting married was like a get out of jail free card.
I would hope that if my marriage did ever fall apart (but I don't see that happening as I am absolutely in love), I would open that closet door, but right now, I'm keeping it closed because I have no need to open it, and I feel like that makes me a coward.
I am always so blown away by the courage of those who live outside the closet. I just wonder if one day I'll have that courage.
