"... if you care, don't let them know,
Don't give yourself away ..."






to give away - to reveal or make something known, often unintentionally; also, betray or expose someone

She gave away her true feelings.

He gave away his accomplices.

This idiom is sometimes put as give oneself away, as in If you don't want the family to know about your gambling, don't give yourself away by spending your winnings. (The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms)

    “There is much to learn about mothering, she said -
    you will need to give beyond your limits,
    yet not give yourself away.
    you will need to soothe and calm,
    even when peace eludes you.
    you will be required to believe without any doubts
    when others shake their heads and sigh.
    to trust your instincts, and follow your heart,
    digging into depths that you never even knew
    were there.
    you will need to give your all,
    and then let go.
    encouraging their growth, cheering their flight,
    all the while watching pieces of yourself fly away.
    and when it's over, your job turns to you.
    and offering all that you've learned to yourself.
    it will be time to mother you.”
