Sometimes we can’t help it and we just can’t keep a secret. Telling a friend or partner’s secret can sometimes just slip out. But, if you’re a good friend or partner, there are a few secrets that you should never tell. Here’s what you should keep locked in the vault once someone has trusted you with it:
· Deep dark secrets about the past. Childhood secrets, troubles someone has been in, etc. should remain under lock and key. It’s not your job to reveal painful secrets about someone’s past. They’re likely trying to move on from it and you spreading it around won’t help.
· Past details of intimate relationships. Intimate details from your partner or friends past relationships aren’t your business to blab. If someone confides dirty details of past relationships you should do your best to keep it quiet. It’s their business and could be potentially harmful if you let it out.
· Someone else’s arguments. If your partner or friend is mad at someone or has an issue with someone and tells you about it, keep quiet. Don’t blab about it and let it potentially get back to the people involved. You’ll only end up making the issue bigger. Let them work it out on their own.
