Illuminating Silent Thoughts

Describe an instance when you had to conceal a secret or withhold your feelings in your childhood.

As children, we often withhold certain thoughts or experiences due to fear, shame, or other complex emotions. Reflecting on such memories might be tough but can open up spaces for self-empathy, understanding, and acceptance. Explore the feelings behind the silence, the reactions of others if the truth was revealed, and the coping mechanisms you adopted while carrying around undisclosed feelings.
