Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.  Benjamin Franklin

Most secrets are not worthy of being kept, for the most part, they are meaningless and feeble unless you killed somebody.

That’s just one reason why they are kept in cramped dark places beneath reality, places that can erupt into rivers of remorse causing ulcers deep inside the soul, liken to Volcanoes.

It’s really no secret that most know the negative power of secrets because most know that information gets out because we cannot keep our mouths shut.  Yep, it’s true, the people with all the secrets are the ones who let the cat out the bag.  So, if you just have to share, I think I would tell a stranger, on the other side of the World.

On the other hand, if you should ask me to keep your secret, I’ll have to know if it’s worth being kept or does it put me in a place of uncertainty?  The choices are all mine; will I refuse to hear it, will I tell, or will I stand by you and keep your secret?

In my opinion, some secrets (promises) are not meant to be kept because of their content.  My suggestion is to get it off your chest by allowing it to surface while praying the exposure will free your conscience.  Then again you can continue to keep it to yourself, if for no other reason than a promise made.

A secret is a secret to whomever it belongs, and I know of few that have been kept, especially the ones you want to keep inside, you know, the ones you don’t dare to let out, and the ones kept to bring joy at its appointed time.  What we need to know is in or out of our mouths some secrets are cancers on our soul that only leave behind destruction on all levels for all involved.

Did you know, A man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides?  Andre Malraux

And did you know sharing our secrets gives our opponents the information to destroy us, so what do we do?  I say don’t do things that require secrecy; such as secret alliances with hate groups, etc… Do not keep or agree to keep secrets at all cost, especially the ones on paper, which can be lost, stolen or tampered with.

A lost of incriminating information will get your panties in a wad if your secrets get out because you documented them.  Don’t start, I am not talking about non-destructive secrets such as surprise marriage proposals, birthday parties, etc…

FYI: By not allowing our failures to become secrets, we can live a reasonable life void of looking over our shoulders; most know the truth has a strange way of showing up at exactly the wrong time.

Did you know, Curiosity is one of the great secrets of happiness, and did you know if we keep bad secrets that belong to us or others we all suffer the punishments that stems from them, mostly in silence.  Hey, it’s a secret, so that’s just one of the many consequences.

The truth is there are no secrets that time does not reveal, coupled with, hiding secrets can cause us to suffer from low self-esteem.  It’s true, we are often unable to be proud of ourselves because of our secret acts.  With that kind of pressure, we may never reach the full potential of our success for having the fear of being exposed.  

Now I understand what H.L. Mencken meant when he was quoted saying; Nine out of ten, in the art of life, there is no truth to be discovered; there is only error to be exposed.

    I like the last quote in your article by H.L. Mencken , ” Nine out of ten, in the art of life, there is no truth to be discovered; there is only error to be exposed.” Truth always appears in the light and secrets hide in the shadows or in the absence of light.

    And to quote by Matthew, the disciple of Jesus, : “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”

    Can I simply say what a reduction to search out someone who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring a problem to mild and make it important. Extra people have to learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant consider youre not more common since you definitely have the gift.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
