I was at a Bible study last weekend when the topic was brought up about being honest with one another. It was about not just saying "Fine!" when people ask "How are you?", but being truthful and not hiding behind your happy mask.
As I listened to the group discussion, I began to hyperventilate. Everyone was talking about being honest with one another. They mentioned how it's important to bring secret struggles to light. About how healing only begins when confession happens. I felt a tug to tell everyone about how I was dying spiritually, but instead, I got up and left the room. I hid away in my friend's closet until someone came to find me.
