What if you’re keeping a secret from lots of people that lots of people are also keeping from you?
More often than not, when you open up to someone, you’ll find out that they have been feeling the same thing … or that they at least know someone pretty well who has.
Sure, you could get a blank stare, or a little ridicule.
But even when that happens (which is really quite rare) you’ve still learned something important.
Not that you should never share again; that you should never share again with that person.
Which leaves you much more time & energy to share with someone who cares 🙂
