Keeper of Family Secrets

    Keeper of Family Secrets

    I am the one who was silenced when I wanted to ask honest questions or admit the truth about our family dysfunctions. I am the one who seemed to observe things that others did not see. I knew that the living things in our family were twisted, and the man-made things were decaying. Everything was turning to stone, but the Guardians of the Family Secrets, who kept watch over what I said, did not seem to notice that secret-keeping steals life. They thought that secrets kept you safe. In many ways, I continue the pattern, even when I hate it, even when I have learned that the Truth sets you free and offers real life. ©Debbie Miller
