    I think everyone has a least one deep dark secret.....It probably doesnt hurt to keep some things to yourself, especially if if hurts someone else.

    Sometimes its better and even more healthy to free this secret because it could eat you up from inside - to set it free you donĀ“t even have to tell it a person. You can do it on your very own, talking to yourself. Just to let it out and set it free. Do you know what I mean?

    Honesty is the best policy....trial and error on y part many many times. No secret is a good secret. Honesty is the best policy even with yourself. Holding back secret no matter how upsetting it may be for someone else is just asking for trouble. the hardest feat in life is forgiveness. some learn to forgive and some are more stubborn about the process. either way you need to let it out and let it go.

    It is not physically possible to keep a secret 'secret'.

    Chances are someone else already knows, whether this is in your knowledge or not, that is a whole another debate.

    Some secrets are best kept to one's self.

    Think of them as lessons learned... you will serve your time for the whole of your life living with them.  If they haunt you they will be chained to you always.  I think the concept of the confessional in the Roman Catholic Church was partly envisioned as a kind of therapy for such "secrets"... a way for people to get things off their chest, as it were.

    One presumes you are a better person for your experiences be they good or... not so good.

    It depends on person... it is better to keep secret as secret , however if it does impact physical or any health issue then it is better to share someone - can be trusted.
