How to keep a secret:

- a secret

1. Ask your (a) friend/ (b) stranger to hold the glass jar and take off the lid.
2. Hold your hands over their ears.
3. Whisper your secret into the glass jar.
4. Ask (a)/ (b) to put the lid back on the glass jar.

5. (a)
1. Ask your friend to throw the glass jar onto the floor.
2. Stand on the shattered pieces.

5. (b)
1. Use the flashlight to light up the glass jar.
2. Ask the stranger to guess what the secret is.

​​​​​​​The roots of a secret are probably the stigma, shame,
 sorrow and anxiety that circles around whatever we are trying to hide. 
We carry these parts of ourselves gently in our arms to feel more secure. 
Yet at the same time we hold ourselves back and distance those feelings which results in secrets. 
These thoughts and reflections holds ourselves back 
and possess much more power over us than we do over them.
