I find myself faced with the age-old question: how much of my true self do I reveal to others-- even like-minded others-- who may not accept what I'm about to tell them? How much do I reveal, knowing I face scorn, rejection, and humiliation if I reveal it?

And can I take the scorn, rejection, and humiliation of my truest self?

I think the answer has to be a new one for me. Previously, I would not reveal these things because I was afraid of the rejection; because I experienced the rejection several times, in brutal and terrifying ways that nearly completely broke me, and certainly broke my heart.

But now... well, I can't stay silent anymore. I can't hide who I am anymore.

If I trust you with my secrets, will you betray that trust?

If I trust you with the deepest and most intimate parts of myself, the most intimate parts of my spirit, will you laugh and walk away?

If the answer is anything but a resounding "NO," kindly leave my presence now. You're not worthy to experience my next chapter.
