Daily Prompt: Evasive Action

What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?

Well it wouldn’t be much of a secret if I told you now, would it? I’ve kept my fair share  of secrets. Some of them are minute and silly, some of them are serious and need to be kept hidden. If a person claims to be true to the core and not have even a tiny secret I will call her/his bluff.

I’m fairly certain that everyone of us has secrets. We done up masks when we walk in the crowd. We all play a part in the theatre. Sometimes we choose what kind of face we want to show, sometimes life chooses one for us. Some secrets are kept on purpose, some just happen. Sometimes we cannot afford to drop our mask and unveil all secrets.

There are times when truth can be painful and devastating, at such times I see secrets as lesser evil. The most important thing is not to hurt anybody by our secrets. Other than that I think that every person is entitled to a dose of privacy and a secret or two. After all, wouldn’t it be extremely boring if everyone would bare their souls and show everything to the world?
