Dear Jesus, I'm Scared

I don't know what to do. I need help.

has anyone ever told you a secret that could ruin their lives if it got out? literally? as in expulsion?
i dont know how to help. if i dont tell someone, i might explode. this is bad, majorly bad. it was a foolish thing to do, yet brave. but very irresponsible trust-wise. i cant even think about what could happen if they got caught. Jesus, guide me. I'm scared.


  1. I know what you mean. I'm sort of dealing with an awkward situation of the sort right now.
    My first inclination is to tell my mom. But then, what if it's taken in the wrong way? What if it's misunderstood? What if something really bad happens to the person and they blame me, or I blame myself?
    I think those are all first thoughts, and that I am exaggerating the consequences. Or i'm exaggerating how I think people might react. So, my next inclination is to tell my bff and see how she reacts, and therefore somehow she can help me measure how bad it really is, and how my parents, for instance, will react to it. I haven't done it yet, but then again, I haven't had a chance. I'm going to, and I suggest that you do the same thing. You don't have to mention any names or anything specific, but it helps. :)

  2. thank you for your advice. i cant exactly tell my mom because it has to do with my sister, who is a sophmore in high school. i was going to asking one of my close friends, so i probably will soon. i was thinking all of those things, and i was being really paranoid about how the reaction would be (from my mom and my sister). she already grounded my sister for two days when she didnt tell her what was going on. plus, shes being bullied at school for what she did, just because she didnt include someone in her plan. she felt sick to her stomach with guilt and worry this morning and didnt even want to go to school because of the bullies. tons of horrible ideas keep coming into my head and i just wish it had never happened.
    thanks again (:

  3. I think you should tell an adult.
