I wrote this story regarding shame 30 days before the reveal of my secret keeping, lies, betrayal, and infidelity. The sexual part of my betrayal was over for nearly 12 months at this point.

The criminalization of infidelity encourages more secret keeping. Criminalization behavior won't stop infidelities from happening but it does reinforce shame encouraging more hiding, trickle truth, and secret keeping.

put up a smile to make things worthwhile

i know people won’t care

as soon as they turn away from me

they’re keeping up a facade

just so i won’t leave.

i only exist to them when they need me.
