The other terror that scares us from self-trust is our consistency; a reverence for our past act or word, because the eyes of others have no other data for computing our orbit than our past acts, and we are loath to disappoint them. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson says: “Always do what you are afraid to do.” What is ‘too scary’ to write about? Try doing it now.

I think that we’re all afraid to write our secrets – unless they’re not associated with us. PostSecret is a perfect example of how people, when left anonymous, can share some of the most powerful messages.  So if I do ever decide to share a secret, it will be in a space where I can do so anonymously – not here.
