Telling Secrets 
by Frederick Buechner
Two thought-provoking quotes which convey a similar message ….

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 hopes 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 ….”

“I not only have my secrets, I am my secrets.  And you are yours.  

Our secrets are human secrets, and our trusting each other enough to share them with each other has much to do with the secret of what it means to be human.”
