Secrets ruin relationships, but I guess if this secret were to save lives then it would be worth keeping.
So on a micro scale secrets don’t worth keeping. But on a macro scale they do if it involves saving lives.
Sometimes it’s best to keep secret what you really think about another person. At least if it’s negative. If you tell the other person this may hurt their feelings or cause conflict. If you like someone then it’s probably best to tell them but I guess it depends on the circumstances whether it would be appropriate.
Would you say that complete honesty is hurtful if it’s something negative, right? It’s tricky because sometimes we think it’s positive, but that other person takes it the wrong way…
Being brutally honest has less to do with honesty and more to do with brutality
I used to do suicide prevention talks in schools, and I would always tell them that one secret they should never keep is a friend being suicidal. Better an angry friend than a dead one. When there’s not a serious risk of harm, though, other peoples’ secrets are not ours to share.
Maybe other people’s secrets are not ours to keep?
Sercrets that can only hurt and never help.
In your opinion, what kind of secrets can help?
Those that can solve crimes and help the families of victims come to peace with their losses. Those that can prevent anyone fro hurting themselves or others.
I don’t understand this question.
What I’m trying to ask is if secrets are worth keeping? If so, what secrets do we need to keep? I think that secrets can affect our mental health so I’m trying to see if some of them are more harmful than others for us.
I feel that many secrets can be kept, but it’s worth noting that the truth always seems to come out one way or another.
What kinds of secrets are worth keeping? Those that can do undue harm. Or really none of the other person’s business.
That’s true. I guess that if we can spare others from useless pain, we can keep the secrets.
The kind that can hurt feelings or harm others when you have no pressing moral or ethical obligation to reveal the secret.
Awesome! So we need to keep the secrets that can hurt other people. What if those secrets can hurt us?
Generally they hurt us because we know we have a moral or ethical obligation to disclose it.
“There’s no such thing as a secret. If you told even one person, it is no longer a secret, and that’s a fact. So, let them all out. By doing that, you thwart the bully”. – From “Be the Loudest, Quietest Person You Can Be” artfromperry
Maybe it’s a group secret 🙂
The ones which are associated to ourselves. The ones, when let out will give nothing but just pain..
If they only give pain, they shouldn’t even exist…
But sometimes we do mistakes right 🙂
We are only humans, aren’t we? 🙂
Yep. Being human even if not human being 😉
How can I tell you, because it’s secret…😁
Don’t tell me the secret, but what nature does it has?
I keep things told to me in confidence that others tell me when they need to tell someone and are unready to tell anyone else.
That’s interesting! So you keep the things that others need to share but they don’t have the confidence to share with others than you.
