Confiding a Secret

I felt out of place in an incident this afternoon. No! This is an understatement. I was offended ---too offended. But I guess it was a blessing in disguise. I have learned from this experience (which I opt not to narrate here) the more appropriate way to confide a secret.

Here it is:
1. A person chose to whom he/she will confide his/her secret. Be reminded to tell that you have a secret to reveal only at the right time and place.

2. Don’t give hints if you don’t intend to share your secret to another person aside form the person you chose. You don’t know what the other person may think.

3. Please be sensitive enough. Avoid the word “squeal” if there is another person with you. It connotes that the other person is unworthy of trust and innately gossip-maker.

FYI: I am suffering from paranoia.
