From that moment in early childhood when we learn to lie, we also learn to keep secrets about ourselves. Later in life most of us learn to keep other people’s secrets too. Sometimes it’s better not to reveal all your secrets.
Batman kept his identity a secret. Why? Because so the life of the Dark Knight can operate efficiently and lawlessly as possible. But in the end, Bruce Wayne is still a person, not just a disguise.
We keep secrets about ourselves to maintain our own self-esteem and sense of self, especially when we're not comfortable with what the 'real truth' says about us.
What is that secret you may ask? Once it's revealed, you'd wished you'd never found out and once you find out the secret, there is no escaping it. You will never be the same again once you know the secret.
If you try to run, the secret will find you. If you try and tell somone else, the secret could haunt you. The secret can never be revealed. The Caped Crusader will be forever kept a secret.
Some of us die nightly in our beds, wringing the hands of ghostly confessors, and looking them piteously in the eyes. We die with despair of heart and convulsion of throat, on account of the hideousness of mysteries which will not suffer themselves to be revealed.
