Frederick Buechner on Secrets

“What we hunger for, perhaps more than anything else, is to be known in our full humanness, and yet, that is often just what we also fear more than anything else.

It is important to tell at least from time to time the secret of who we truly and fully are … because otherwise, we run the risk of losing track of who we truly and fully are, and little by little, come to accept instead, the highly edited version, which we put forth in hope that the world will find it more acceptable than the real thing.

It is important to tell our own secrets too, because it makes it easier for other people to tell us a secret or two of their own.”
