Past indiscretions have a way of coming back on you, and yours have rebounded on you. Your mate has discovered something you wanted to keep hidden, and you're feeling exposed and insecure. What you fear is true -- your lover does think less of you than before.
But what you don't know is that the shift is due more to your secrecy than to what you did. How can your mate trust you if you keep things hidden? Come on, open up. Reveal all the aspects of the situation. What were you feeling at the time? How has this affected your life? How have you changed since then?Opening up like this is quite uncomfortable for you. You would much rather revert to your usual pattern, pretending like nothing's going on while you bury your head in work. You also fear rejection if your lover knows your true self. But you must let some air into your dark closet. It's hard to breathe back there! Let your lover know what's up; explain the repercussions of your past choices, and allow your lover to make choices about what to do next. It's scary being an open book, but you can only move forward by letting go.
