Watch the video first; only then you’ll understand what I’m writing about.
When I watched it myself it occurred to me that we do indeed have many secrets. A secret, at the end of the day, is after all just something that you’ve never told anybody. Somebody may know, but they may not be aware that it’s your secret or that maybe you’re keeping it a secret.
Secrets are personal and we can have many reasons why we don’t want anyone to know certain things. Maybe we’re embarrassed or possibly ashamed. Maybe we did something illegal (that’s kind of the worst case scenario I’d say) or maybe it’s just something we don’t want to share, because it makes us vulnerable or very emotional.
I have secrets. And if I apply any of the above, I have more secrets than I would’ve even guessed. But there are things I’ve never told anyone, there are things only a handful or fewer people know, maybe only one other person, who may not even remember that they know.
I don’t really think I have big secrets, only a bunch of little ones. But I suppose it’s a matter of perspective, too, on what you consider a big or a small secret. We each have to be the judge of that in each of our own cases, because I’m certainly not going to tell you a secret in order to figure out how you may rate it.
I think it’s okay to have secrets. We all do, after all. No one can know everything about somebody else. Everybody has something they never talk about or mention, maybe not even on purpose. It still qualifies as a secret and that is okay.
Sometimes nobody else needs to know. Maybe it’s a good thing to have something that doesn’t belong to anybody else. Secrets can certainly define you and if you’ve watched the video, you know that secrets can be life changing.
I don’t believe in letting it all out. I think a little mystery is good and makes you more interesting. I can’t imagine how boring things would get, if I knew everything about someone or if someone knew everything about me. Good grief.
I don’t have skeletons in the basement. That might be scary. But I will keep some things to myself and you can consider yourself very special indeed, if I tell you even one.
Mind you, I may tell a secret without even knowing that it would classify as such.
Then again, I am writing this blog, which maybe a dozen different people have checked out by now. And I’ve told secrets here, or things that not all of my dear readership knew about me. I suppose I have few secrets I consider too dear to tell.
Just don’t expect to ever find out everything about me.
