What's your point of view?

 Someone asked if a dark secret should be revealed or concealed..



In my point of view, everyone has a secret whether it's dark or not. Some secrets are meant to be kept and not to be told whereas some secrets could be told to someone else but not to the person concerned. That could be called gossips for real.

What if we happen to know someone's secret? Would we just keep silent about it or tell others about the person concerned?

Let me voice my opinion. If I knew someone's secret and it's better to be quiet about it, I would do just that. Some people can't keep secrets and thus most secrets are revealed and they might cause shame or pain to the person concerned.

Regarding past secrets, maybe it's best to leave it alone as it's over and has no concerned to the person anymore. Bringing it up or telling the secret might jeopardize most people.

What about present secret whereby it's still happening? Should we confront the person concerned or just pretend not knowing anything about it?

Lets hear your view about it.

  5. present secret and confrontation?? well, i don't find a link there.. i mean why do we care, it's just the business between that two person right?? i would choose to pretend that i do not know, the persons involved should have settle things themselves..

  12. I rather people don't tell me secrets, or say, don't tell anyone yet. You hold it and realise other people already know.

  14. Being a scopion, I consider myself a good secret keeper, which I will not leak any secret if told. But to myself, it's always GOOD to keep secret only to oneself, and not to be told even to the nearest person..

    2. i would rather not know. Unless the person who wanna tell me is someone who is very close to me and listening to it may help her. Sometimes a person just need to "unload" coz the secret is eating her life.

      Delete
    3. I would listen but I have to keep that secret too..

      Delete
  23. not sure about what you say "What about present secret whereby it's still happening? Should we confront the person concerned or just pretend not knowing anything about it?".

    for me if there is no benefit then just pretend dont know about it lo. If confront will bring to family breaking up and all that it is not worth it unless love is no longer there

    1. sometimes present secret is hurtful to the person. So we need to see if revealing the secret might help.

    2. that is one big headache lor. Just dont know the right time to reveal.

      Delete
    3. yes, can do much. Better don't know any secret.

      Delete
  24. Secrets are meant to be kept quiet about it. I won't sell other people's secrets and doesn't want ppl to take about my secrets too if they knew about it. I've been keeping a big secrets for years....and I just have to continue keeping it because I've promised not to tell. A promise have to be kept too.......
