The Secret

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 15, 2012, 7:07 AM
Can You Keep A Secret?


Well, me too, haha! But seriously, how often did you answer to the question if you can keep a secret with "no"? Probably much less often than with "sure" or "of course!" We don't want to appear being not trustworthy, and of course we are curious as well.

But how often do we wish we hadn't heard what was just confessed to us, now we carry the burden of this knowledge with the promise not to share it with anybody else. What have we gotten ourselves into?

And how often do we actually hold on to that secret indefinitely? Aren't we glad when we find out a secret is no longer a secret and we can finally talk about it, even feel a sense of bragging rights because we have been "in the know?"

So I ask you again, can you keep a secret?

Ingo


PS: thanks again for all the nice comments in last week's journal!

I can keep secrets pretty well...usually because I forget them. :P

It's all been said already, but I certainly can keep a secret. I like to think of myself as trustworthy, but if I were to hear something I wish I didn't know, I sort of ignore it in a way. Not really in such a way that I don't acknowledge it's existence, but if it bothers me, I choose not to think about it. That way, it's easier to forget about, and thus easier to keep from confessing it! Besides, with those kinds of secrets, if I didn't want to know, what would give me the idea someone else would?

Ha,

I think I would not be able to ignore something I heard, but good for you!

I can keep a secret, although most of the secrets I keep are about myself. ;)

Yes, our own secrets, of course! Good point,

I have a really bad memory, so keeping secrets is easy 'cause I forget them! lol!
But seriously, the one thing I've learned about secrets is that, "If you don't want everyone to know, don't tell ANYONE!"

Yes, because I don't like people telling to everybody what I've confessed them, it's very annoying D:
