Secrets: The Price Of Keeping Quiet

I keep secrets for a living. That’s more or less what a therapist does. 

But in my personal life, I don’t want anything to do with them. 

I don’t find delight in them whatsoever. 

To me, they’re an imposition. 

As humans, we are hardwired to feel valued when someone confides in us. 

It scratches an evolutionary itch that can leave us feeling bonded to the person who shared the secret. 

So if that’s true, what gives with the expression, “You’re only as sick as your secrets”?

It turns out, some secrets are quite literally a burden. 

In this episode of We Need To Talk With Dr. Darcy Sterling, you’ll learn:

  • The difference between being “private” and keeping a secret.
  • The types of secrets that are most damaging to your mental health. 
  • The surprising amount of secrets the average person keeps.

AND… I share the reason why I refuse to be on the receiving end of secrets in my personal life.
