How would you react when a friend of yours does something terrible and pins you in the mess? There are those who believe in second chances, not everyone deserves this opportunity to make things right.
I happened to have a good friend whom I shared so much information with, and a good percentage of my secrets were invested in him.
I knew we had so many things in common that brought us close, least did I know that he was a loose mouthed one ready to clear his name by dragging me in his problems.
The moment I was called by the authority to explain some dirt that I knew he was involved in, it was the time I knew that he was a good for nothing guy who would roast his only trusted friend in order to save his own skin.
It was so hurting that I had to explain the mess in my own terms. Giving details and accounts how it went down and who was involved. At the end, the case backfired and he was in so deep.
Believe it not, the guy came to me and accused me of setting him up. He denied having involved me in his dirt and that I cannot be trusted with a secret.
I kept quiet about it because someone had already told me who had set me up, and I was so mad that anything above what I was already feeling could have triggered physical fight in public— something I hate in life.
Anyway, it was a month later that he came asking for forgiveness. Yes, I accepted him back but I do not get carried away in conversations that might result into giving him my secrets or allowing him to share so much with me. I even told him that I am no longer his confidant.
I learned that a secret is for one person, never for two people.
