No Secret is Safe Outside the Grave. Agree or disagree?

To me no secret between two or more people, no matter how close the may be, is truly safe as long as they both know about it. There are too many possibilities and contingencies to say that a secret is actually safe when the secret-keeper(s) could blabber at the mouth at any given moment. I personally believe that until the day that everyone who knows a secret has passed, the secret is never truly safe. What do you think?

That is definately the Truth and you never know whether or not the person you just revealed or told something too is really telling the Truth or not, and if they will keep quite about everything you just talked about, or wait until your first squabble somewhere and bring it out in the open. Especially when around other people. So the Best thing is for some things to be left alone unless you are in the mood to eventually have your Dirty laundry aired out in public somewhere as well.

Indeed, that happens so much more often than not. All it takes is one angry friend and what you thought was a safe secret can suddenly become a weapon of mass destruction to be used at their disposal. And the radiation is permanently toxic in most cases.

I agree. Even if we have people who we trust and share those secrets, time will come, it will be known. Secrets are made to be told and its a matter of chosing to whom you tell it to.

I believe there to be a good deal of truth to that. Some people intentionally make secrets for the sole purpose of them one day being revealed, but when it comes to a situation like that then you can't really call it a secret at all. It's more like a fact that has yet to be found out but isn't being hidden

Once you've tell your secret to someone or anybody else,could it be your family or best friend,it's no longer a secret. The secret will remain a secret if you keep it by yourself and bring it till your grave. So,if you want to keep your secret,never dare to tell it to anyone. happy Sunday welcome to mylot

Ahh I suppose that is another way to consider it, that a secret loses its secrecy after someone other than yourself knows it. You make a good point there. And thanks for the greeting, happy Sunday to you too. :)

i like to tell you that you are correct with that idea. secrets are no longer secrets as long as you say it to someone. it's better kept on yourself than saying it to someone even though it's your very bestfriend.

My thoughts exactly, because once it's out there it's also just a burden on those who know the secret since temptation can be a hard thing to fight at times, especially when it comes to keeping your mouth shut :P

I can agree. That is why I don't like secrets. It can always come out, most of the times it's ending pretty ugly. I remember when I found out that my father is not my father. I was a kid but still remember this situation. Some woman from our area when we lived that time got drunk and started shouting to me that my father is not my father. That I shouldn't call him dad. Every kid listened to this. I was completely shocked. I know that my parents should told me about this secrets as soon as I was big enough to understand.
