How have the secrets you’ve been hiding impacted your life? Your relationships?
If people really knew who you were, how do you think they would feel about you? Would they still love you? Are you afraid of being rejected or other consequences if you stopped pretending to be someone you’re not?
What is present in your life that's absolutely intolerable?
The converse of the sentence above is also important: “What’s missing from your life that’s absolutely necessary?”
Have you ever told a secret you were afraid to reveal? What were the consequences? Were you shamed by some people? Did you find people who accepted you? Would you agree with Oprah that everyone who tells their secret benefits in the end?
