When is it okay to keep a secret?

If you have a secret that you really want to tell but know that nothing good will come of it beside a weight being lifted off your shoulders would you tell? Do you think that it's selfish to tell just because you want to get it out? When are you suppose to keep a secret and when should you spill the beans?

  • Only spill the beans is someone is in danger. If you can't keep a secret, like me, say so ahead of time.

  • I would never tell a secret unless someone's life was in danger. If this was shared with you then it is your responsibility to keep it as a secret. If you tell the secret it is called GOSSIP. If you need to tell because you want to get it out, then I would annonymously post it and leave it at that.
    If you had people tell secrets about you or your life you would know it is not right to tell others' secrets.

  • i think when you tell your own secrets to somebody, you will learn that nobody (even family ) is not to be trusted. if you tell somebody else's might be ok to tell your siblings or someone who isnt connected to this one person, but if you know the person knows the other people well, eventually they will narc on you and tell on you.

    its a big ol' circle of backstabbing

  • What if it's your own secret? Not someone elses. You haven't hurt anyone but you've done something you presume to be bad and just want to get it out? But don't want to saddle anyone else with having to keep the secret.
