Some secrets are better kept secret because they can pretty much shake your whole existence and change your view about life, this is one of the times when ignorance is bliss. We all think that we have normal lives and that our history in this world is boring and generic, but that's just what you can manage to remember because sometimes you might find some terrifying secrets buried so deep and most of the time it's much better if you just ignore them and move on with your life.
It’s about my sister but when she was a baby my mother tried to give her away because she didn’t want her. My dad found out and got her back from the woman. She is 21 and still doesn’t know.
One time a friend’s mom let it slip in front of us kids that she took him to the doctor a few times because his penis was so small. We never forgot that. Ever. He ended up with some anger issues later on.
My adopted kids came from a couple of meth addicts. Even though they all remember their birth mom and dad fondly, they have no idea how horrible they really were and how much they put the kids lives in danger and I’m not sure if I can ever tell them that.
I have the opposite problem. When I was a child my mom started to tell me a story about me that apparently had something to do with right after I was born, but my dad stopped her and said, “He doesn’t need to know about that.”
Last I’ve ever heard of it. The eerie feeling you’d imagine hasn’t quite worn off, and this was 30 years ago.
I recently found out I have a half brother and both my parents don’t know I’m aware of it.
My fiancées daughter (6 years old) hugged a kitten to death when she was 2. We’ll not be telling her about that for a very very long time.
