I've Got A Secret

23 November 2015 Written by 

 “You’re only as sick as your secrets.” This slogan continues to make more sense to me as time goes on.

We all have them. The secrets we hide inside ourselves actually eat away at our spirit, soul and body and do damage from the inside out.

It’s critical that I find someone whom is trustworthy, non-judgmental, and loves me unconditionally – a person who I can share my intimate secrets with. I don’t need to tell the world, only one safe person. In the sharing of my secrets, I tell myself the truth. When I can face the truth, it is the beginning of freedom from these internal secrets that are making me sick.

Those of us who hold deep wounds and secrets begin by taking baby steps. The feelings we have behind the secrets are bottled up and stuffed down. It’s time to open the door and begin to allow ourselves to feel the pain so that we can in turn release it.

Once I face the truth, I can begin to move forward in healing and health. No more secrets, no more lies, no more denial. The cleansing brings health.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
