This week I was a writer and I posted an article about how keeping secrets can be bad for you. All of the people that commented back to me agreed that most of the reading we have been reading so far in class makes sense, but the writers aren’t really speaking to our age group. The article I found and other ones that people found and put under my post were more suitable for our age. We could relate to them more because most of us have a best friend and can understand how keeping a major secret from him or her could ruin the friendship. In class, we have mostly discussed the negatives of inhibiting a secret, but someone on my post brought up a good point that you can also get even more hurt by sharing your secret with someone else. This brings up a good point because you have to know how to trust people, which is hard for a lot of people to do. It was nice to know that many other people in the class could relate to my post and I liked hearing their viewpoints on sharing and keeping secrets.
