When we hide the secret underbelly of our truth from one another, then we each go away wondering, “How come she has it all together? How come her relationship/work/children/life is so successful? What’s wrong with me?” We feel vaguely diminished from this ordinary interaction, and from hundreds of similar interactions we have from day to day. When we don’t share the secret ache in our hearts – the normal bewilderment of being human – it turns into something else. It’s almost as if we are embarrassed by our most human traits. Our pain and fear and longing in the absence of being witnessed, become alienation and envy and competition.
What ache do you carry?
