Feb 27, 2018

This case can be divided into two halves.  The first half is where the informant talks about family secrets, why it is a topic for her, and how she was frustrated upon discovering some of her family’s own secrets.  It is here that the listener learns a lot about how family secrets negatively impact future generations.

In the the second half, the informant goes inward and checks herself about her capacity, or not, to disclose some of her own secrets for her children and their future children and grandchildren.
