Write it down
Grab your most top-secret diary and let it out! You’ll feel
the relief of spilling the secret, without actually doing it. Just make sure
that private journal stays private.
Find a fellow secret
Ask your bud if anyone else is in on the dirt. If so, gossip
with that gal about the sitch instead of someone new (with your bestie’s
permission, of course).
Step into her shoes
Whenever you’re feeling that urge to spill, take a sec to
think about how you would feel if your secret were being shared. Hopefully your
conscience and a little guilt will help ya keep those lips sealed.
Is it really worth losing your fave gal pal over a little
gossip? Of course not! So next time you’re itching to dish, think about what’s
at stake. Fights, hurt feelings, silent treatments…yikes!
Stay honest, no
Let your BFF in on your secret-keeping struggle. Telling her
it’s hard for you will make her realize what an open, true friend you are. And
if it slips out to your big sis or your BGF, don’t stress. Calmly explain the
oops to your girlie. She may be a little mad, but she’ll appreciate your
honesty and be more willing to give you a second chance.
