As humans, we love to share, it’s our way of building relationships. Hoping people can relate to what we’ve been through, we’ll open up about relationships, work, and family to find solutions. But we always have to remind ourselves that we can share, but not too personal. Private life is called private for a reason, and unfortunately, not everyone should be trusted. Let the ugly truth be told, a friend today can turn into an enemy tomorrow morning, and not everyone has the integrity to honor what has been shared with them in intimate moments. Additionally, you shouldn’t share other things because it doesn’t concern anyone but you. So here are some things you should never share unless you’re super confident about the person you’re opening up to.
- Past mistakes and regrets.
We all may have dark secrets that we have done in the past, but today we regret and are ashamed of. First of all, we all make mistakes, sometimes mistakes that are completely against our values, but nothing and no one should make you ashamed of your past. However, you should be very careful about what you share with others, you can never be sure that this person will not judge you or use it against you.
- Your financial situation and income
These days, people have become lazy and curious when it comes to asking silly questions like how much they earn per month and how financially secure they are. But the point here is that how much you earn is very personal and nobody, not even your partner, has a right to know if you’re not comfortable sharing that information with them. On the other hand, you also do not have the right to ask someone how much they earn per month, or ask about their property or assets.
- Family problems
Every family has its own problems and conflicts. It’s one thing to get support from a friend to deal with family issues, but talking negative things about your family to strangers is a big no-no. Behind-closed-doors events and family squabbles should be kept between members.
- Communication problems
Everything between you and your partner should be confidential. The dynamics and intimate details of your relationship aren’t something you share with others, not even your friends. Every couple has their own way of doing things that works best for them, so it’s not a good idea to involve others in your problems or how you manage your relationship.
- Your weakness
You have to be very selective about who you associate with in order to be vulnerable. Not all people have good intentions, and even worse, some people can take advantage of your weaknesses. It’s sad to say that not everyone wishes you well, and people turn against you when their interests conflict with yours.
