The Joys of Secrecy

The above title is such an oxymoron. Here I am publicly announcing my love for secrets. It's a lined that's easily blurred in our current state of society. Everything is over-share, over-share, over-share! We send and post pictures of outfits while in the dressing room, we are constantly walking around phone or camera in hand capturing every living moment. We upload, text or email instantly. There's no privacy, there's no secrecy.

I'm certain it's not just me --I tend to belong to a small unique society of people with the same morals, ideas and humor. I know that the others find the joy in keeping things to yourself. Making your own decision without the influence of what your "best friend" thinks or what your parents have dreamed for you.

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I just love the thrill of keeping a personal secret. Let's not mistake this with telling lies or holding back things that are important to say, but simply ideas, adventures and thoughts that remain only with you. It's empowering to me personally to know that I have an experience, shared with just one other person or with no other person, that no one else in my life knows about.

It feels very adult of me. Finally, I feel like I'm in my 20s.
