Shhhh…a secret?

“He who conceals his disease cannot expect to be cured.”  ~ Ethiopian Proverb

I love this proverb; we conceal our illness, our weakness and often suffer in silence. However, when we make ourselves vulnerable, often answers, healing and support may show up – and offer hope and even health restored.

Have you ever been seriously ill or experienced a situation that felt shameful such as domestic violence, mental illness? If so, how much did you conceal your disease – or not? Thoughts?
