Anonymous Confessions: In My Closet

Welcome to Sunday Confessions!  The topic this week: In My Closet.  See my post and the posts of the wonderful bloggers who joined me here. Facebook is still making it increasingly hard for Pages and Bloggers alike to share content, sadly.  So be sure to follow me on other forms of Social Media to get all of the information!  We are still sharing Page Confessions.  Here's what happened yesterday...anonymous confessions are BLACK, mine are PURPLE, and page confessions will contain a link!

" My scale is in my closet. Hidden in a box. My daughter has an eating disorder which came to a head this winter."

"When I was little I sometimes like to sit in my closet with the door closed because it felt safe."

"I lost my fiance 3 months ago, and his best friend has been my rock! I have fallen for him.  My biggest worry is that he is 22 and I'm 31, I've never been with anyone younger than me.  Plus what will people think about me being with his best friend so soon after his death.  I also worry that we have these feelings because of our grief.  Any advice is welcome!"

"In MY closet there's a bunch of old clothes in a giant pile that makes the flooring for the closet and new clothes that hang up on the bar. There is also some odds and ends of which I haven't seen in years probably. My wedding dress (which has yet to be cleaned) and a giant oak hope chest. And my most prized possession in platform 5 inch black leather stripper boots BOOYAH! Told ya I was a freak!" - Peaches and Shyt

" In my closet hides the girl I used to be. The girl who was a lot smaller. The girl who had no idea how much she would change once she gave birth.
My closet hides the clothes that are too small. The clothes that actually fit but make me sick to look at. It hides my yoga pants, stretchy pants, leggings and other suitable stay at home mommy attire. 
My closet hides the cutest boots I never wear b/c they don't match my sweat pants. 
Worst of all, my closet hides me from myself. I don't want to look in there and see all the bigger clothes. I want to look in and see the skinny jeans that used to not be a struggle to wear. I want to put those clothes on and not feel like a drag queen, someone always in costume."

 "The shoes I wore to prom are sitting in my closet." - More than Cheese and Beer

"I am an in the closet equal rights supporter. Well, mostly secretive to my father-in-law and mother-in-law. Ironically, my husband's step mom has a gay son who is AWESOME and we all love him. Even my father in law. We just don't discuss it. #lovemesomemos Lol"

"I complain (a lot) about the DH being a hoarder.  My closet(s) prove that I am one, too.  Somebody call Stacey and Clinton, please!" - Mommy Needs Wine, Not Whine

"I cheated on my husband. I recently admitted it to him, and we are working on rebuilding our marriage."

"In my closet is where my husband and I get to have sex. See we co-sleep with a toddler which would be fine if we didn't have 5 older kids on the other side of the house. No fun times in the kitchen, or on the couch or being romantic in the shower (glass doors and no real door to the bathroom). So when we finally can steal a minute away I am getting rug burn next to sneakers and laundry. Ugh - what I would not give for some alone time or a grama near by. Once we both took off work to stay home and have a "naked Wednesday" while the kids were at school / the sitters - it was magical. I miss being spontaneous and free. "

"I'm the only woman who works in my shop, if they hired another one though, I'd quit."

"I have a walk-in closet to house all the skeletons I own. Just one for now...I am a closet lesbian, have been for about 12 years because I work for a religious educational establishment and if they found out, I would lose my job. So the last 12 years of my life, I feel have been a lie. Not fair to my partner at all, but thankfully she understands that it's to give our child a great opportunity."

"My closet The parts of me I fear, hate and loath. I am a worrier. I am always in fear that I am not good enough, that I just don't measure up to who or what others think I should be. Or even worse, who I THINK I should be. Am I good enough for the job I do at work? Will they finally realize I am not qualified, and let me go? Am I good enough as a husband? Will she find someone better? Better at supporting financially (see previous fear). Better at listening and supporting her emotionally, spiritually. Do I really take care of all of her needs. Am I a good husband, or an ok husband? Am I good enough as a father / step-father? I pretty much screwed up the first kid, why did God give me others to mess up as well? My closet hides all of me that I just don't want others to see, and I even worry that one day, some day, they'll see the real me, and I just won't be good enough any more."

"I've struggled with bulimia. It has been horribly isolating. Now you know, and my friends who will read this will know, and somewhere in me I will feel free." - @ Ms. Mundane

"Used to have a mini fridge stocked with beer n margaritas a cozy place to sit n lock my self in away from kids"

"The only clothes I keep in my closet are the ones I am hiding from my husband ... so he doesn't realize that I have started using credit cards again after 6 years and a major debt consolidation pay off. I think I have a problem and it makes me sick to my stomach."

"In high school I expressed some opinions in the form of lipstick drawing on the wall in my closet. After I moved out, my parents were having some remodeling done and their contractor was re-trimming the closet that was once mine and he started laughing and said to my dad, "Who is Paul and why is he a dick?" I'll snap a picture of it later to share. My parents went ahead and left the "art work" there."

"When I was little I was afraid of the dark. My step mother was angry with me one day and locked me in a dark closet and to this day I still sleep with a light on...."

"In my closet one would find...some very boring clothes and sensible shoes. My closet does not befit the real me - the more I look at the contents of the closet the more I wonder why I hide behind "solids" and very little patterns. Everything seems to be sensibly and logically chosen, yet inside I am raging to be wild & crazy, eclectic and unpredictable. Would love to do a purge and a wardrobe overhaul but in order to do so, I need to figure out exactly what "look" I am ready to share - still looking for my true voice. BTW - I share my closet with my husband and his growing collection of superhero themed t-shirts makes me a wee bit jealous;-)" - Superior Nonsense

"My closet is a bit of a nightmare to be honest. There is so much "stuff" crammed up in there that the shelf has collapsed on several occasions. Most recently leading to almost 2 weeks of a 4 year old in my bed. (you will have to visit my page and read old posts for the scoop on that!) And while I constantly harp on my kids to keep theirs clean, the state of mine shows how hypocritical we can be as parents! Thanks for the prompt. Now I can add "clean my closet" to the ever-growing list of things I "need" to do.... ugh." - A Day in the Life of a Drama Queen's Momma

"When I was a little girl I always played in my Grandma's closet. I'll never forget the time when I found her stash of Reese's cups hidden in a pair of shoes in a shoe box. As we shared one, she said she hid them there from my Pap and I couldn't tell him or he'd steal them.I never did tell my Pap. And now I hide my own stash in there."

 "#InMyCloset, you'll find an array of things... Clothes (that I don't wear) broken electronics set aside for repair... But most importantly, it's where I hide the chocolate (Shhh, don't tell the kids!).Come on, you didn't really expect me to hang my skeletons out to dangle for all the world to see, did you?" - Why Didn't Someone Warn Me?

"Are three men who should not be.  Y'all might not like me for what I am posting.  Just being honest.  One is physical.  The other two online.  Sure feels physical though.  All three give me something different.  Whether desire, curiosity, humor or courage to keep going forward.  They are there along with my 26 pairs of shoes that fit me too.  That is my closet." 

"I am an in the closet equal rights supporter. Well, mostly secretive to my father-in-law and mother-in-law. Ironically, my husband's step mom has a gay son who is AWESOME and we all love him. Even my father in law. We just don't discuss it. #lovemesomemos Lol"
