Are You Hiding Art In Your Closet? How Fear of Vulnerability Keeps Us Stuck

Updated: Feb 9

I've been hiding art in my closet. It might not be what you think, but I’m guilty. Let me explain.

When I was in college, my roommate and close friend of mine told me a story of a childhood friend that was a brilliant artist. She spent her spare time and money to create paintings that were masterpieces. But, she shoved all her work in her closet, to be seen by nobody.

I remember being shocked. I grilled my friend: "Why in the world would she do that? Just hang them up. Just sell them. How could you hide a talent like that?”
