The Secrets and Lies Collection

What is it that causes us to conceal our feelings, our thoughts and our behaviours at times? What are our motives for hiding the truth? What are our perceptions of the effects of our dishonesty? When is it OK to be completely ‘open’ and tell the whole truth? What causes a natural reluctance we may share to disclosing our experiences?
