I hate secrets.
Secrets ruin friendships, families, lives.
Secrets can make you ill, and sometimes kill.
They sicken anything they touch.
They suffocate the truth and squash the spirit.
Secrets fool you into believing you look good on the outside, when you’re really hurting on the inside.
Grab that secret and yank it out. Go on. Rip it out.
Look it straight in the eyes, deep inside, and tell it you’re not afraid.
Taste it, smell it. Now feel it engulf you. Listen closely.
Be gentle now. Hold it like you would a baby’s tiny grasp.
Deep in the web of lies, you’re tangled.
Pull yourself up and gently remove those lies.
Stand tall, with all your strength, expose those lies. One by one, open each lie.
Let no secrets bind you now.
Let it come pouring out.
You have nothing to hide. Don’t be afraid.
Melt into the truth, relax into it.
Yes, it may feel like a big giant hole in your heart at first, and it will hurt so bad, you’ll want to die.
Honor it. Go ahead …cry.
Cry like you’ve never cried before.
It is there you will find your peace, your loving kindness, your truth.
Feel your heart expand and soften in your self-compassion.
Share those tears and let the healing begin.
