Dream Collection 2 Secrets Part 2 The Dream

Dreaming shows you many hidden things in your mind; it opens you to alternative thinking…
Clairvoyance is always a problem I have had. I have very vivid dreams, and that same times come true. This is one of those instances.
	Imagine, if you will, a little boy having a nightmare, waking up, and realizing everything is ok. Happens to everyone right? No. that was me, or at least, the nightmares…
	I had (what I thought was real) a dream once, about 5 years ago, back in 5th grade. It all started with one secret, and a little white lie that turned into well, a big white lie.
	So one thing about me, I am socially awkward, people don’t like me, I don’t like them, I like to be alone.
	So I chose to break my own rule, of course it didn’t exist at the time, to break the third thing.  I was being made fun of by this kid so I lied and said I knew a secret about him but no one could tell. I told everyone that he well, still wet the bed, this was not true but everyone believed me. I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into.
	So this kid broke my second rule by trying to figure out, but he did it the smart way. Instead of flipping out and asking everyone and just getting made fun of more, he asked a teacher. This teacher happened to have already heard it and told him.
	As I basked in my fame from breaking rule one, this kid was slowly getting revenge, this little thing ruined my school life. He came up with a counter lie… He told everyone I was adopted. I was shunned for life, although, thankfully I moved. 
	The moral of my story is, this happen, but lying doesn’t work, and secrets definitely don’t. Keeping things from people just hurts them. I ruined my own life by keeping a fake secret and lying. So my question for this little rant of mine, as is at every one of mine, how do you feel about secrets, but more importantly, do you have any secrets?
	Through all that happened with that little lie, I am still baffled to this day, what is it that makes a secret so desirable? Do you not want to be made fun of? Or do you just feel cool for knowing a secret?

    The line between secrets and just not telling someone something you know, is not clearly drawn - not everything needs to be said. But lying is obviously wrong. I guess people desire to know secrets because it makes life more juicy or perhaps it makes them feel as part of a group. The only rule: Never start rumors, don't spread rumors, ask for clarity. This is well written Jarrod!

    Lieing is never good or easy, every lie you tell is one you must remember & who you told it to and who you didn''s a nightmare! Light & Love
