I Know A Secret

The hardest part of keeping a secret isn’t hiding it in conversation, it’s having to live with the secret alone and being unsure whether you’re doing the right thing.

Most common secrets include romantic desire, money and finances, family secrets, secret ambitions, and violating another person’s trust.

Keep Or Not To Keep

If this is something that's continuously happening, then it's a much bigger deal to be holding this issue back.
