I feel like people keep secrets from people to spare hurting feelings. Here is an example of 9th grade secrets, when you have a crush on someone and you tell someone, even if it is your best friend, it will most likely get around to them. I’m not saying you don’t need to trust your best friend but you need to make sure they are as scared as you are to talk to your crush. Many people will lie to their friends to make it so their friends don’t get hurt even if it is hurting themselves. Moral of the story, just tell the truth. Once you tell the truth you feel a lot better.
