5 Things To Always Keep Secret

secretBetter Life


It is not advisable to communicate every detail of your life to everyone; sometimes a listening ear becomes a running mouth. Keep your secrets to yourself.

You aren’t lying. Some things are better kept private, don’t you agree? Discussing your personal information with everyone, especially sensitive issues, usually results in disappointment.



Here are five important things that you need to keep secret:

1. Your Innermost Thoughts

Your beliefs about certain topics should remain as your belief system, but not something you try to inculcate into others.


For instance, your thoughts about life or death might bring diverse reactions when you choose to them as a discussion topic.

Learn to understand that your thoughts are your interpretation and not the objective truth. This stance may save you from arguments.

2. Your Philanthropy

Helping a person or charitable work improves the development of individuals and our society, but it’s more valuable when you do not seek recognition for such benevolence.

When you try to publicize how you have been helpful, it usually seems like boasting. People might think your intention for such support was to seek popularity. There’s virtue in adding value to people while remaining anonymous.


3. Your Goals

Your plans ought to be guarded with all diligence until you are able to achieve them. Vocalizing your plans might cause other people to steal your ideas and work on them, dealing with loopholes you may not have noticed.


Inspiration to your Inbox

A demoralizing experience like this would make you regret you made your plans known to anyone, so keep them secret. Keep them safe.

4. Your Lifestyle

Certain details about your personality, such as your sex life, religious life, bad habits, etc. are better kept a secret unless you trust the person with whom you’re speaking.


It’s not worth it to put your emotional conditions out to anyone. It might even lead to an argument if others don’t agree with your lifestyle choices.

5. Your Family’s Dirty Laundry

It is disrespectful and unwise to bring stories of conflicts within your family to others. It devalues you as a person and can bring ridicule to your family.

Often, such stories are passed on until, down the line, the true story has change completely. Problems in the home are best resolved in the home; keep family issues within the confines of your home and loved ones.

  1. I have to wonder what group of people the writer of this lives in. I’m Native Canadian and we talk about all of this stuff. And there’s no problem. Like live amongst judgemental thieves much? I feel extremely sad for people who have to abide by this list.

  2. Yes Infound this very opting this issue o secretes that should be key to ones selfs is basically the essentials of life . All the advice was very well chosen. With integrity and guidance to the unpersumed uneasasary harassment of others that dwell on to others lives because they are in worry of value or class in their own lonely exciting lives. That will find out everything about your life on the internet they can about you , your , family and anyone else in relation ……to taunt your every being to life just to invade your so called now private life …. And find humor in pressing the what they want a part of your lie with whatever the reason of mental anguish towards you… please be careful in every way knowing what a visious mean others want to accomplish. In regards to my life wad a nightmare… Un habnitable Others of class or involvement at the least.

  3. another thing I have encountered in life that I think should be kept private is the kind of girl talk that one woman is likely to share with another such as about their marriage and specifically problems in the marriage such as with sex or with in laws and finances. Women seem to need to vent to other women but it causes the other women friend (or sister or mother) to have an attitude or at worst an opinion about the friends spouse that will effect the dealings with them in the future and might even be gossiped about within friendship or family circles. It is best to make your spouse & your business top secret from friends. A sacredness should be between spouses where no friends can come between them where it is understood the loyalty goes to the marital bond first and foremost.

  4. 1.If you are facing a financial problem in life and dealing with it or difficult or any kind of money related issue, never discuss it with anyone.People will try to avoid you or just show sympathy. Genuine help rarely comes
    2.Learn from the mistakes of others… you can’t live long enough to make them all yourselves!!
    3.A person should not be too honest.Straight trees are cut first and Honest people are screwed first.Be diplomatic if need be.
    4.Never talk to others about the character of your wife/ husband. It has serious consequences..people talk, belittle you and will try to take advantage

  5. Talking about family medical issues to others,though there’s HIPPA in the workplace, perhaps family members don’t want others to know about past or present issues.

  6. Things of value you own or store at your house. You shouldn’t boast that you have valuables, emergency food supplies, weapons, stashes of money, jewelry, the value of your art or collectables, etc. Other people won’t keep it a secret and the wrong person might find out about it.
