    Kinda, Sorta

    I grew up keeping the biggest secrets in my life secret for 31 years. Told no one, not even friends, until a jealous girl forced it out of me with her antics. I am 35 years old. I don't confide in many people online or offline. I am not anti-social. I am very friendly. I just am...

    I keep a lot of secrets from everyone.

    Even some of my "friends" (I feel like they don't like me anymore) and family. If one of them even found out 1 secret, might as well throw a bomb at us cause our relationship will explode.

    Because Of Shame And Emotional Pain....

    I like this group, it sums me up right now. I am always ashamed to talk about my life with others. I am single, no friends, little of a social life, still live at home (although most of my colleagues of a similar age do as well so am not so hung up on this anymore) and I have a...

    Offline.

    Offline, I am very secretive about my life. No one knows much about me & I like it that way. The less they know, the less I will be ridiculed. No one understands the way I am or the way I live & all they want is to make me feel bad & degrade me once they find out. Because of...

    Months and Months For the Truth...

    I really don't like telling people, even family, about my own life. I like to have things to myself and much rather prefer people not knowing my whole life story. It took me 2 months to tell my parents about my [ex]boyfriend and after it was over it took me a month to tell them...
