thank you for responding. You have done the right thing by informing your uncle about his son's matter. By the way, how old is your uncle's son / your cousin ?

yes,I agree with you,due to my tight mouth,friends like to share with me their secrets.I believe if do not others to spread your secret,you have to be the one who keeps secret as well.

oops typo mistake, sorry ;-) I mean if you do not want others to spread or disclose your secret, you have to keep others secret as well.

If someone tells me a secret, then yes I can and do keep it because not to do so would mean a betrayal of their trust in me. That would certainly lose the love and respect the person has for me, and my friends are far too important to me. However if a person started to tell me about something illegal, then I would tell they had the choice of going to see the Police or I would but that would not be a betrayal of their secret because they would be aware of my intentions. Similarly if someone was doing something wrong and I found out, then I would tell them to own up to whatever it was or I would tell on them. It is about friendship, what we value in this live balanced with our moral values and respect for the law.

yes,if someone tells you his/her secrets, it means the person has trust on you but being a person with a tight mouth does not always has the same return from others. I am a tight mouth person but I have been betrayed by a close friend,this has some effect on me in a way that I now seldom and try not to disclose my secret to friend.

Normally I won't disclose another's secret, but if it has to do with someone getting hurt, then I will.

Does the one you have disclose his/her secret, blamed you for disclosing his/her secret ?

I have never shared my friend's secrets to other people. You may lose your friend's trust when he/she finds out. Friends are so hard to find, so I'd rather not take the risk.

When someone confides in me I never ever tell. That is why many of my friends respect me. Also I try not to judge them, but I do give them my opinion.

thank you for responding to my discussion. I sometimes finds it very difficult and in dilemma when I feel that I should disclose someone's secret for his/her own good but yet I cant do it .That's why I prefer being a good listener rather than keeping others' secret.

Nope, I never share secrets, or betray trust. Its unfair and I wouldn't like it done to me.
