Choosing Openness over Deception
Season 1, Episode 42
There is no relationship where every minuscule aspect of life can be fully disclosed. Yet when deliberate efforts are made to hide events or significant facts, problems are sure to ensue. Healthy relating consists of keeping no secrets of a moral or ethical matter, and by having the fullest accountability that common sense allows. In other words, being known is essential to being securely connected.
