The worst part (about secrets) is that you never know what’s going to happen or what’s going to be rumored. Or, you are going to be the one exposing someone. It makes some people act differently from how they usually are.


It sometimes causes anxiety in different ways. Secrets are about crushes, you, our identities/sexuality, and lies. Next thing you know, you are in your room crying, not wanting to go to school. You are always in a bad mood now. There’s no way to fix your mood anymore.


You can be the one keeping secrets from everybody, but every day, you feel guilty. Or, you can make someone feel bad by talking to someone while looking back and forth at someone else. Just remember you are being watched by someone very secretive.
