Psst ~ Can I Tell You A Secret?


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.

Shine On!

  2. I agree that holding on to secrets do get to you over time. Currently in such a good relationship that we really don’t have any secrets which I like. ♥

    If we can find one or two people that can handle the weight of a secret kept, who will “have your back” and never think less of you, then you are truly blessed! When you can connect with the right person….shame, pain, anger, fear….they can’t survive compassion!!! 🙂 xoxo

  4. I finally released my secret a few weeks ago via my blog regarding an abortion I had while married and yes it was my husband’s, during a really difficult time in my life and felt a huge burdeon lifted. I knew I would be judged, knew I may lose some friends over it but I’ve never felt better! 🙂 Shine on!
