Do you have a secret? Have you ever told a secret? What about being given a secret? If not, then that is a total lie. Secrets are something that we all have and sometimes share depending on who you are telling. These secrets can lead to amazing things or they can lead to someone’s demise. For example, you told your friend a secret that has been eating you up from the inside. Your friend has a choice on what they are wanting to do with this information, they can either hold this information or they can choose to spread it around and/or start a rumor. This can cause fear. So, why do people share these secrets if it can cause fear?

One reason is to get it off of their chest. Another reason is because they are mad at the person that told them. Honestly, no one has a designated answer to that question. It is a mystery, if you want to think of it that way. Either way, it is a part of being humans and can help you find out who your real friends are.

Everyone has a secret, and you shouldn’t be ashamed of what that secret is. For example, if you have an eating disorder or if your dad is in jail, you shouldn’t really be ashamed, and if you want to share it, go ahead. Again, we are only human and we make a bunch of choices that can cause us more harm than good. So, do what you think is right for you and don’t shy away from it. If someone spreads it around. Own it, tell the real truth and don’t think too much about it. If people want to make fun, who cares? It is you, and you can be who you want to be. So, what is your greatest secret? Are you scared of it getting around? Why?
