Some secrets are too personal to even share with blood, and perhaps more accurately, some family members can't be trusted with our most vulnerable truths.
While it's emotionally healthy to have at least a few confidantes you can reveal your most intimate secrets to, family isn't always the safest or preferred space for that, even if they care. Even if you're planning to reveal the truth, sometimes it takes time to cook up the best time and place for an intense sharing session.
In a popular Reddit thread, people shared the secrets they're currently keeping from their families, and they range from heartwarming to heartbreaking.
I had a "suicide pact" with my cousin. He wasn't all there in the head and lived with his parents (my uncle and his wife). He would babysit me when I was 9 to 11y/o (I think my uncle thought it would help him focus if he had to watch a kid during the summer.)
