Can I tell you a secret?
I cannot reveal the most significant secret I’ve kept, but I’ve kept it for over 30 years. The truth has come out to a few trusted souls, but not many.
I think keeping secrets eats away at the soul, drowning the spirit in layers of lies upon lies in order to not reveal the original secret. It’s detrimental to all involved, but especially to children. The resentment of keeping a secret erodes the body like a cancer.
Telling the secret can sometimes be a guilty, sticky situation for the teller and listener. It is with utmost caution that one lets the secret out of the bag like the proverbial cat when you can. It’s not easy, it’s scary and it’s difficult. And it’s a job I don’t recommend.
What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?
