Today I am thinking of a different framework to experiencing authenticity and liberation, coined by Sekneh Hammoud-Beckett, a scholar and therapist of Lebanese Muslim ancestry.
Instead of coming out and all its attendant pressure, "coming in" is to think about inviting or allowing someone to "come in" to your life. Hospitable sharing gives you the choice to disclose to who you feel safe with, when you are ready.
You have a rich inner world. It isn't some 'closet.' It's sacred.
