When I looked at this daily prompt I thought just in general about secrets. They are harmful period. Even if you keep them. I mean what is the purpose of living an honest life if someone for instance does something really kind for you and tells you don’t tell so and so they may not like that I helped you? Then why help me if it bothers you that someone else would be mad at you for doing it. I mean how ridiculous does that all seem. Now, on the other spectrum a secret that is keep because it is horrific such as a rape or a molestation, I can tell you from experience those secrets kept to fester inside of you for to long is very devastating and ruins your whole life unless you talk about it and work with a professional, sponsor, or friend on ways to move on from such a awful expierence. Then there are the good old secrets partners keep from each other for one reason or another. And he or she is suppose to be the love of your life? Why would you want to be nothing but honest with your true love. If your secret would ruin what you have then in my opinion it’s not the perfect love you envision! Again, this is my outlook on secrets. As for my own, they are mine to keep for now, if indeed I have any!
