Regarding Secrets

Writing 101:Day 3: One word inspiration..

A good friend of mine once said this (regarding secrets)….

Whose fault is it…

…when you say something to somebody, and you tell them it is a secret, to not to tell anyone, and they tell everyone…

…is it their fault for breaking your trust?

…or is it your fault, for telling them specifically not to?

    1. Good advice! I had to learn the hard way ☺ At least now I have a small circle of friends that I am fairly open with – I don’t mind if my tales travel between them. And if it goes farther than that, I am unaware ☺

  1. I have a friend who tells me her deepest, darkest secrets, but always seems to share the most trivial things about me to anyone who will listen. The imbalance is striking. I opted to not tell her anything I wouldn’t want broadcast on the news and to stop being a confidant. It works both ways, I think. x

    1. It does! And some people just can’t help themselves (I think). I haven’t decided if it has made me more close lipped, or more willing to share – knowing that my words may be broadcast. I think I flip in between the two. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Sabiscuit ☺ Much appreciated.
