Past indiscretions have a way of coming back to you, and yours have rebounded on you more than once when your partners discovered something you wanted to keep hidden. You felt exposed and insecure. What you feared came to be true -- your lovers thought less of you than before.
But what you didn't know was that the shift was due more to your secrecy than to your actions. How can a mate trust you if you keep things hidden? Come on, open up. Reveal all the aspects of the situation. What were you doing and how did you feel 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 that nothing's going on while you bury your head in work. You also fear you'll be rejected if your ideal lover learns the whole truth about you. 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 how you're making better choices now, starting with them. It's scary being an open book, but you can only move forward by letting go.
