I have a secret. Don't we all?
We all have secrets. We all have things that we'd rather not have anyone else know, things that we feel are best just kept to ourselves or between a few. Or it could be that no one else can know, because it means that less people will get hurt if you keep it to yourself. Or, simply, it could be a surprise. Something amazing has just happened that you can't tell anyone else just yet.
Growing up, I think we're all taught that secrets are bad, that you should always be 100% honest with everyone around you. But I think when you do grow up, it's just not that simple anymore. Does keeping something from someone because you think it's for the best mean that you're not being honest? Does it make you a bad person? I don't think so. (I mean, obviously if this secret is that you've just killed someone or that you've just stolen something, then the answer's probably yes... but you get what I mean.)
Life gets complicated sometimes, and the pressures from society and social media to be 'perfect', and to create this ideal that we're all meant to live in can mean that we're too afraid to say things, admit things that we secretly love, or confide in our friends because of the fear of what they would think.
I was thinking the other day, about different things that some of my closest friends have confided in me with, and that I know that there are things that they have confided in other friends that I don't know. And the same goes for me too. There's little bits of my life that different friends know about, because I went to them for advice on different topics because I knew that they would be great at it. But, does this mean that any of us will ever have one person that knows everything about us?
Maybe this is me just being young and naive, but I'm curious to know, do you guys have one person that truly knows everything about you? Or do you keep little things from even your closest of friends?
