my brother never keeps my secrets - July 29th 2014, 03:54 AM

my brother is going to screw everything up. i asked him not to tell my mother something, and its not a huge thing. i just dont want to deal with her overreacting, but i think hes gonna tell her and then she will freak out because thats what she does. shes gonna go nuts and she already thinks im a terrible child so... i dont know what to do.

Re: my brother never keeps my secrets - July 29th 2014, 05:01 AM

To be honest, I don't think families are able to keep one anothers secret. Like, in my family, we tell each other things and within a week everyone knows what is going on but we act like we don't until someone is kind of confronted or something like that. I think that is the case with a lot of families because I have seen the same thing played out in a few different families.

You said the secret that you told your brother wasn't a huge thing so try not to stress that much about it. If your mom does find out about it try and talk to her about it and calm her down. Explain to her that it isn't a huge deal and explain to her why. Hopefully this will prevent her from freaking out too much and will help things get to a smoother route.

Also, you never know, your brother might keep your secret for you. It honestly just depends. Try not to stress about it until you know for sure where his head is at.

I wish I had better advice but there really isn't much you can do but play it out and see what happens.

Hey.

As the user above me said, most family members dont hold secrets to them. I know its sad but since its not a huge deal for you, you dont need to be stressed. You can take this experience as a lesson. You can surely handle this. Stay calm

the problem is that even though it isnt that big a deal (i was with my moms friend, and she said she wouldnt tell my mom) my mother thinks EVERYTHING is a huge deal

Well I dont tell my parents anything. Nor my sister. They dont know what I do, where I am, who am I with and were all happy that way.
My mum overreacted before. Thats how i learned to keep a cool head.
As people have said, families dont keep secrets. Thats why I dont really talk to mine. I tried it once with my sister, it got out only a few days after and she is already an adult.

If you need someone to tell a secret, let it be a friend. Or, you can just be like me, and keep your secrets to yourself, where they should belong in my oppinion.

I can assume your brother will rat to your mother if he hasnt already, so all you can do is endure the scolding and the rubbing and learn from what youve experienced.

If you make a mistake once, its a lesson. If you make the same mistake twice, its a choice. Remember that there are good choices and bad choices.
