“Secrets erect barriers that shut other people out… holding out on undesirable, embarrassing information can turn you into a kind of undercover agent, someone who must be on guard constantly lest the dangerous truths about your character and history emerge….. the secret is your closest companion.” “Secrets, Lies, Betrayals” by Maggie Scarf
