    Have you ever been told a secret by someone and then asked to never ever tell anyone else.

    I can and do.  I always assume whatever someone tells me is private and I do not share information whether a secret or not. I hate gossip.

    Yes, I have been told a secret and asked never to mention it to anyone anytime anywhere--and I never have.  That would be betrayal and wrong.

    When I decided to start my non-profit org. called Letters From Home, so many private stories were shared with me and I will never repeat. Duty and Honor and Respect are 3 simple words I live by.

    Only if the secret can not hurt anyone to keep it. However, if a harmless secret, I can save llo by the time it takes.

    I kept a secret for about 35 years before I finally broke my silence. It was such a sigh of relief to get it off my shoulders.

    Forever, because if not then it is no longer a secret.
