Top Ten Things You Should Never Hide from Anyone

We spend so much of our lives worrying over how others will react to who we are and what we're about. We keep things hidden from others as a means of protecting ourselves and in many cases this can lead to us isolating and hurting ourselves instead. Let this list help you feel more comfortable with yourself and towards showing the world who you really are (or, perhaps, protecting yourself and the people you care about). And, of course there are things one could add like "A Crashed Spaceship" that will be tempting to add to this list. I ask that we keep this list serious and avoid fantastical or nonsensical additions. Please don't fill this list with trolling and spam.

The Top Ten

1 Sexual Assault

I know this could be represented under "abuse", but this matter is so frequent and so serious that it deserves its own spot. - BKAllmighty

2 Abuse

This means physical abuse, verbal abuse, stalking, financial abuse, sexual abuse, and even online abuse. The list goes on and its all horribly wrong. - BKAllmighty

3 Your Sexual Orientation

Everyone has their beliefs on this subject (religious or otherwise). The one thing you cannot argue against is being true to who you are and accepting that fact. - BKAllmighty

Eventually, it has to come out (figuratively and literally) someday, or you'll never quite be happy. - keycha1n

You shouldn't have to hide it, unfortunately, not everyone will accept you if you come out

Not until you're ready. - BeatlesFan1964

4 Love

This can mean a whole host of things. Love fuels the fire that is life so don't let your flame burn out. Let the ones you love know how much they mean to you. - BKAllmighty

The only problem with my love for people is that they neverEVER love me back. AT ALL.

5 Your Belief System

I understand some opinions are unpopular by society's standards. Whether you stand on the liberal or conservative side of things its not being honest to turn against your ethics and morals. Politics can be very poisonous when the subject of religion (or anything similar) comes up. It's very unfortunate. However, its never good to shove what you believe in other people's faces, either. It's best to stand in the middle and be reserved about your personal beliefs. - BKAllmighty

I am a proud Conservative. If this offends you, I'm happy I made you mad. - GhostBird

That's Plagiarism! It's worse than telling ordinary lies! - Animefan12

6 The Truth

Telling the truth matters so much in life. Honesty is a courageous and respectable thing to have and nobody will ever not respect you for telling the truth. It's not always easy but it sure is a relief to get things off your chest. - BKAllmighty

There are 3 people from whom you should never hide the things from - Your Doctor, your parents and your lawyer - Ananya

You can hide the truth, but you shouldn't tell a lie.
How much do you agree with this quote? - Animefan12

7 Your Appreciation for Others

This one spins off from "love". You should always let the people who make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you know how much their efforts mean to you. - BKAllmighty

I have never done this. Ever. I don't see the point in being indifferent. If I appreciate something or someone, I let it be known. I wear my heart on my sleeve but unfortunately it has landed me with a lot of disappointment and heartache in the past. - Britgirl

Especially because you can never be sure when you might not have the chance. - PetSounds

8 Your Passion

When the chance comes around I am a very passionate actor. I'd never hide that from anyone because it is such a big part of who I am. Of course, "passion" came come from anywhere and be a dedication to almost anything. - BKAllmighty

No one will persuade others for you. Even if its embarrassing or arrogant, ill never refrain from showing my passion for art, and for God as well! - keycha1n

Directing is my passion. I love it. People say I'm a leader and I believe I am.


My passion is for music and something else that I won't share. - letdot52

9 Your Imperfections

Nobody's perfect. Don't feel that if you let others see your insecurities and imperfections that you will be judged like some criminal on trial. Everyone relates to feeling this way and everyone truly IS imperfect. It's life. We're all in the same boat. We're human. - BKAllmighty

10 Your Weirdness

People think I'm weird because I'm autistic. But autism doesn't make you weird and for those who have it, I hope you realize what I've realized: autism makes you you. Though my autism can be a bit... Difficult at times, I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's part of who I am. If I didn't have autism, it would make a drastic change in my personality and the manner in which I behave. - RockFashionista

I don't care what other people think of my weirdness, I will always be as weird as possible! - Minecraftcrazy530

I embrace my weirdness. I challenge you to accept and embrace yours. - BKAllmighty

Sometimes my own friends think I'm weird because I like reading and have glasses. And I don't have long hair like them. (They are Hispanic and I am black.)
