secret 5 The other day, I read something that said: "Somebody told me a secret and I'm dying to tell someone..." or something like that; and that got me thinking about how secrets can remain that way when only one person knows; because if you tell someone, it's highly likely that they're going to tell it to someone else, I think it's human nature, we just can't keep secrets; something about them eats us on the inside until we finally have no other choice but to tell someone about it.

But the thing about secrets, though, is that most of the times you tell them even when you know the other person's going to repeat them. It's kind of like a leap of faith, a big moment of trust that bounds you to that other person. When you share a secret with someone, you create a bond that links you two in a particular situation during a specific moment in time. That's why people exchange secrets as a way of getting to know each other better, they lower their guards and open up the other.

So, the most important thing, perhaps, is that you need to be really careful with your secrets; you're choosing how much of them to tell and picking a specific person to share that burden with. If you're going to share a secret, make it something special, choose carefully and make sure you have a goal in mind because, remember, in the end it is like that song from The Pierces: "'cause two can keep a secret when one of us is dead."

// El otro dia, leí algo que decía: "Alguien me contó un secreto y estoy muriendo por contárselo a alguien más..." o una cosa así; y eso me puso a pensar sobre cómo los secretos sólo se mantienen así cuando una sola persona sabe; porque si le dices a alguien, es muy probable que esa persona le diga a otra, creo que es naturaleza humana, no podemos guardar secretos; algo sobre ellos nos come desde adentro hasta que al final no nos queda otra opción más que contárselos a alguien.

Pero la cosa con los secretos es que la mayor parte del tiempo los dices aún sabiendo que las otras personas los van a repetir. Es como un salto de fe, un gran momento de confianza que te ata a la otra persona. Cuando compartes un secreto con alguien, creas un lazo que vincula a las personas en una situación particular, en un momento determinado. Es por eso que la gente intercambia secretos como forma de conocerse mejor, bajan sus barreras y se abren ante el otro. 

Así que, quizá, la cosa más importante es que tienes que ser muy cuidadoso con tus secretos; estás eligiendo qué tanto de ellos contar y eligiendo a una persona específica para compartir esa carga. Si vas a compartir un secreto, haz de eso algo especial, eligiendo con cuidado y seguro de tener una meta clara porque, recuerden, al final sí es como esa canción de The Pierces: "'cause two can keep a secret when one of us is dead."
