skeletons in everyone's closets.

Skeleton in the cupboard, or closet, is a colloquial phrase used to describe an undisclosed fact about someone which, if revealed, would have a negative impact on perceptions of the person.


I think everyone has skeletons in their closets.

Since I'm not a native english speaker, it's easier for me to use the phrase more freely.

I think people's skeletons aren't just huge, scary secrets.

People's skeletons sometimes are just even their almost everyday secrets; their weaknesses.

The things you can't say in public; the things you'll feel embarrassed if people knew. Some things that you feel you're not able to speak about and that weight on your back.

Sometimes people have heavier skeletons. These look like the less apparent; the more sensible you re about them, the better you keep them safe and secret.

And sometimes, you don't even know that some people had them. Or you suspected they did, but didn't know how heavy they are.

I don't even know.

Things like this make me realise what a big world the one we live in actually is.

Who knows how many of the people I've met in my life have skeletons huge, scary skeletons hidden inside them?

Now I'm going to put my shoes on and go to class, out in the world.

Most of the time, skeletons in the closets don't block people from trying to be good.

P.S. Yeah, I'm back from a month of not posting anything and now I go and post a ranty emo thing. Wow.
P.P.S. Last phrase. I'm such an optimist.
P.P.P.S. What better way to ruin the mood by writing random extras! I fail so much.
