Idiom of the Day: the truth about something you did wrong. Maybe you did something secretly without your wife knowing, or you made a mistake that your employer should know about. This can range from something simple to very serious. When you confess your situation, you are “coming clean.” This will help begin the process of healing and repairing the situation.
Sometimes you need to tell someone
“Yesterday I had to come clean with my college professor and explain that my assignment was not completed. Fortunately the professor said I could turn it in late for partial credit.”
