Miley Keeps them, But Should You?

Hey Girls, it Rose here.  I was just thinking about old Hannah’s diary and the really big secret she was forced to keep and it got me thinking about whether keeping secrets is a bad thing.  You know the sitch.  It’s late at night at the sleepover and only you and your friend are still up.  She turns to you and says, I have something to tell you. Your eyes light up ‘cause you know it’s gonna be something good, otherwise, she would have told everyone in broad daylight.   But can you keep a secret – or should you?  I mean what if the secret is a big deal and you feel like your friend is in danger?  Or what if something really embarrassing happened to you and you’re dying to tell someone about it – but how can you be sure the whole school won’t hear about it?

Well, when someone shares a secret with you, you can feel pretty special – after all – you’ve really earned her trust.  And now you might be more willing to tell her one of your secrets.  And you’ll find that sharing makes you two grow closer.   But you need to be careful… When sharing secrets, start small, like maybe admitting how you really want to write a book someday, not about the fact that your parents are fighting all the time and you think they might be getting a divorce.  After your sure that your BFF can keep a secret you can share bigger ones.

But how can you be sure that your secret is leak proof – after all, once you tell someone a secret, it’s really no longer a secret.  Well you’ve gotta to make sure she knows it’s a secret.  If she doesn’t know for sure and word gets out – can you truly blame her for spilling the beans?  But if you told her something is secret and someone the whole world knows about it, well you might want find someone else to share secrets with…

And don’t forget you have to be a good secret keeper too – if you aren’t good at keeping secrets, well then people won’t take your secrets seriously.  Or they’ll stop telling you them totally – and you may ruin your friendships…

But what if you feel you HAVE to spill someone else’s secret.  Stay tuned for what to do when it’s time to spill the beans.
