I think that, for most of my life, I've prided myself on having the ability to be discreet, to keep information in confidence when asked, and to take secrets to the grave when necessary. I listen well, I don't air out other people's dirty laundry, and I don't like to pry into things when they aren't my business.

I realize that maybe I'm not so great at it when it comes to keeping my own secrets, however. See, I don't tend to hide things about myself--if I ever do, it's certainly not with the intention of keeping things hidden. In fact, I'm hard-pressed to think of anything about myself that I *wouldn't* talk about, if I were asked about it. I don't have anything to hide, or anything to prove. I think I'd only really hesitate if someone else's privacy was coming into play.

So, the fact that I'm ostensibly having to keep a secret about myself right now, to spare someone else potential hurt feelings? Kiiiiind of terrible. I know it's already affecting my behavior when certain combinations of people are in the room. And this all could have been avoided, if said Someone had just put on their big-kid panties and faced up to the reality of the situation.

Yeah, I'm a little bit bitter. But, I'll get over it. And it's not going to stay secret forever--I'm closely adjacent to the situation, and taking this one to the grave is too much to ask, even for me.

Woooo, VagueJournal!
