I’m going to keep this one very short. This is more of a rant than a general post, but I think that a lot of you can still relate to it.
As much as I like to have a good chat with my best friends, there are some limits that none of us ever dares to cross. My best friends and I usually talk about anything and everything because we’re all in different cities and this is how we keep each other up-to-date, but I don’t think any of us would ever dream of outing secrets to each other that we have been entrusted with, simply because it would make for great conversation. It sounds like a very rude thing to do.
I, for one, can assure you that I wouldn’t want people I trusted my deepest, darkest secrets to, to be running around spilling all the beans about things that I would rather leave in the dark. So, it’s only natural to be furious at people who think that this is okay. Under no circumstances are any of us allowed to put anybody’s secrets out there in the open without their permission. Whatever the reason may be for keeping a secret, nobody gets to decide whether that secret should be out in this world except for the person it belongs to.
I don’t understand why people think it is okay to reveal somebody’s secrets without their permission. It never is and never has been the right thing to do. I shouldn’t have to explain the reason why spilling the tea on somebody is wrong. And for whatever reason you choose to let the cat out of the bag, remember that you’re breaking somebody’s trust by doing so. It doesn’t matter who entrusted you with a secret, and it definitely doesn’t matter who’s asking you to come clean. The only thing that matters is guarding the secret.
A lot of us draw the line at different places, with different people. Our whole lives are about building different levels of walls around ourselves and only letting a handful pass through certain levels. So, it is really disturbing to even imagine that somebody you spilled your guts to could be out there talking about you right now. I trust the people I’ve shown my darker sides to, but I’m not sure that it is the same case with everyone. So it is only natural for all of us to be wary.
That being said, if you’ve been given a secret to keep, don’t, for whatever reason, tell anybody. It’s best to never bring it up, and even better to even forget that such a thing exists. Don’t go back on your odds and disappoint the person who chose to disclose themselves to you. This is just not done.
Lock it up and throw those keys away!

The secret is not telling the secret who are bad at keeping it.
I have learned it the hard way!
