Do you have parts of yourself that no one sees? I think we all do. And despite a lot of research saying that the more we reveal, the happier we are – I’m not sure I agree. Maybe it’s just how I was raised, but I’m skeptical of letting it all hang out. I think it’s good to have boundaries and privacy. I am definitely not one of those people who finds it easy to bare my soul, but maybe it would be better for me if I were a little more open about my fears and shortcomings 🙂 Who knows?
No matter what, I think too much secrecy can be a bad thing. When we keep too much to our selves, we start to feel ashamed of who we are. Everyone has things they rather change about themselves, and keeping them away from the world can make them seem even worse then they are. Often times, when we open up, we can’t believe how many experiences, thoughts, and feelings we all share. And there’s something powerful in knowing that your friends and family accept the true you.
With all this in mind, I set out a quiz to figure out what each of us may be keeping private. What’s Your Soul’s Secret? This image quiz will tell you what you’re keeping from the world, why you’re keeping it a secret, and what might happen if you freed your secret a bit.
Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):
- What do you get on What’s Your Soul’s Secret? Is it true for you?
- In general, do you feel like you reveal too much, too little, or the right amount?
- What common secret / feeling do you wish more people revealed?
