How secretive are you?

All my life I have tried as much as I can to be as open as I can with both my family and friends about my dealings .This has worked for me to a very satisfying degree and I never really believe that there is a need for secrecy. I, however, had some experience in recent times where I was open about some dealings with some friends and I have had my fingers burnt so I have decide that there will be a need for some level of secrecy in everything in everything I do from that point. I want to know are you secretive or are you open like I used to be? And what degree of secrecy is necessary in life?

I have tried to be as open as I possibly could also with my family and friends but I learned the hard way that most of them do not even care and some of them do not even believe me. I am definitely more secretive now because alot of them like to spread my business to other people and it is none of those people's business at all. I hate for people to tell things about me and especially when some of it is untrue.

yes it is painful to realise that those you tried to trust eventually go back to stab you especially when the things they say are not true but anyways we all have had our own share of these things it is always good to learn and then adjust thank God you lived to talk about it.

I am secretive towards some people, such as my family, but more open to my friends as they are less judgemental. I don't open up to strangers as I find that people that open up too quickly just like talking about themselves.
