I did not realize that a secret is a big responsibility until last night. Suddenly I felt like someone is going to ask me to keep her secret. I was nervous and hoping she’s not.
Why people share their secret? Simply because the secret is so heavy that their shoulders can’t carry it alone. They need someone who could share the burden or whatever it is.
“Biar pecah di perut, jangan pecah di mulut”
Keeping a secret of someone else is not easy. We usually ended up sharing with someone we trust and asking them to keep it to themselves. But, what we don’t realize is that person we trust might possible done what we did… sharing it with the person they trust… then the secret is no longer a secret.
If you are not capable to carry the responsibility and to lift the weight of the secret, don’t. Just be honest and tell the person that you are not sure if you are strong enough to keep the secret.
