Keeping a Secret

A few days ago I found something out that was
disturbing and I couldn't decide if I wanted to tell
or not. I knew that this certain person needed to
know the secret; keeping something this important
from her would've been wrong.

I only kept the secret for a couple days and during that time my entire body was
stressed. I hardly had an appetite and I felt extremely guilty. Even though it was
awkward, after I told her the secret she thanked me for telling her, so I knew I'd
done the right thing.

Before you decide if you want to divulge a secret
weigh the pros and cons and ask yourself...
