Secrets hem you in or shut you out. The content of the secret may be harassing or may be lethal. It is, however, the power of the secret that will kill you for your secrets define and own you.
Secrets in healthy relationships creates intimacy and strengthen the bonds of commitment. Secrets within dysfunction, even more so the functional dysfunctional, strengthen private strangleholds and form a prison into perpetuity.
Secrets that lead to success, secrets that lead to peace are openly shared freely. Secrets that lead to ruin, secrets that lead to control are stealthily exposed in opportune fashion but never freely and always at a price.
Pick and choose the secrets you will keep. Some lead to freedom. Some lead to private hell. Some will keep you traveling six inches above the earth. Some will take you six feet under.
