I have a bit of a ritual when it comes to reading my own secrets. I really like to spend an hour or so going through all the secrets on my laptop or in their books and thinking about what each secret means (or meant) to me. Sometimes it can inspire me to write a response to a particular secret where the situation has changed - this secret is exactly that. It reminds me a little bit of the thorns that grow around the castle sleeping beauty is imprisoned in. Enjoy!
