No matter your closeness with some people, there are certain things you must not tell them. As we all know, the world is full of wickedness, and the hearts of men are prone to evil thoughts. So, you have to be extra careful when dealing with others.

We are all guilty of having a person in our lives that we are comfortable with sharing the most intimate details about ourselves. So, that means we trust them and their judgements. However, there are some things we must never share with even those we trust the most because you never can tell what it could result into.
We, as human beings want companionship. We can create bonds in the most unlikely of places. This leads to strong friendships between people. We share our innermost feelings and secrets with these people. This is natural and healthy, however, we should not discuss everything.This is not about keeping secrets, it is just about keeping our personal life personal.
Here are some things you should definitely keep to yourself.
1. Family Problems
Every family is unique with its differences and problems. Also, you should always be a united front, this is how you find a solution.
Therefore, there is no need to involve other people in your family’s problems. You might be taken advantage of or misjudged.
2. Good Deeds
It's good to be kind, in fact the world needs kindness everywhere. So, we all need to definitely do our best. Doing good does not take much effort, even when it sometimes does, the effort is worth it.
However, try not to use every available opportunity to share your good deeds with others because it might not turn out well. People can think you are bragging and they might try to outdo you.
3. Life Goals
It is always a better idea to keep your goals to yourself. This is because you might need to change it according to some unforseen circumstances. Changes are constant and are a certainty of life.
If you share your goals with other people, this will lead to people having unachievable expectations of you. This will just cause confusion and stress which you don't really want.
You need to keep all the details about your finances to yourself. Money usually runs the world and causes major changes in relationships. So, it is better to always keep it personal.
Some might want to get closer to you in order to take advantage of your finances, while others might have some unreal expectations of you. So, if you have more, save it and do not talk about it.
5. Personal Life
Another thing you need to keep to yourself is your personal life. You should not drag people into your problems. Also, they might not like your drama as well.
Every one has one or two problems in their lives facing them and would appreciate not adding to it. When people get involved in other’s lives they become susceptible to their stress and emotional ups and downs and it can also lead to unhealthy attachment to another person’s personal life.
Sharing the moments of your life with others is needed. However, you do not need to share every single detail with others, no matter how close you are.
