How do you hide?
We all have something we would like to hide. For some, it’s a mistake that isn’t obvious. For others, it’s plans for a future surprise event. Revealing something you would rather not let anyone see takes courage. First, you must find someone you trust. Then you must be vulnerable with that person to show them that you trust them not to use the secret against you.
If you’ve chosen well, that person is someone to build a relationship with.
Sadly, it’s hard to know which people to trust. It’s not just our current-day culture. The question of whom you can trust is thousands of years old.
When you pick the wrong person, you are hesitant to make the same mistake. Trusting becomes harder. The shame and embarrassment of trusting the wrong person makes us grow a tougher shell. We become the tortoise who can’t move forward because of the fear of being seen.
Our self-protection keeps us from meaningful connections with people.
