Tealight Talks - "Confessions" Part 2
Each month, the editors of Tealight Press interview each other with questions based on the months theme. For this months 'Tealight Talks', Matt interviews Sash on Tealight's topic for November, "Confessions."
When was the last time you told a lie?
Today. I said I had a good, fairly productive day when actually I just napped...
Under extreme pressure people will often confess to a crime they didn’t actually commit. Have you ever confessed to something that wasn’t actually true?

Have you ever made a confession to someone and regretted it?
There's one or two love confessions that make me cringe so hard to think about I can't even put them in detail here... /laughs/ I've also said things in anger that I sorely regret and, though they might have been true things in a sense, should never have been revealed through an expression of intense emotion. These are things I think about often. Nowadays I try to ask myself: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? If whatever I want to say isn't at least two out of three of those things, I bite my tongue.
Almost 15 years ago to the day, Madonna released her acclaimed album ‘Confessions on a Dance Floor.’ Do you have a favourite Madonna moment?

I think about it often and try to channel her confidence and energy!
Have you ever told a secret you promised someone else you’d keep?
Everything goes to my therapist. If I do need to talk about something that someone's confided in me, I try to anonymise the information and share it with someone in a different sphere of my life. People confiding in me is such a precious gift and I don't want to jeopardize that
