How do you feel about secrets?
We’ve talked a little before about how for some people their asexuality is a secret, but the spate of recent sexual allegations of famous media personalities has me thinking more generally about the kind of secrets people keep.
I’m terrible at keeping secrets. Mostly my own, but I’ve definitely been caught out by sharing something I didn’t realise was a secret. I process things by sharing information with other people, rather than keeping it all in my head, so I like to talk things through with the people in my life. I’ve been lucky enough that the few times I’ve had to keep serious secrets for other people, they haven’t had to stay secret for long.
Have you ever had to keep something a secret? Does it feel like a burden or do you prefer to keep things private anyway?
