Keeping secrets from our parents is a tale as old as time, and it doesn't stop when you enter adulthood and move out of the house. Sometimes we do this to protect ourselves from their judgment or anger—but more often, it's to protect their feelings.
1.) From Unique-Philosopher8:
I kick the fallen ice under the fridge
2.) From confused-bridetobe:
That I have major financial issues and am worried about the next months rent. It would stress them out and I don't want that to happen
3.) From AileWing:
I’m considering moving away without telling anyone, them included. I‘ve been having difficulties improving my life, and it eats at me. I know they don’t think poorly of me, but when I’m around them I feel inadequate, even though I do enjoy their company. I think I need to go someplace where no one who knows me is nearby to get into a good state of mind to make the changes I need to make. But there’s always the fear of being wrong, so I don’t know if I’ll do it.
