How Today’s Youth Handles Dealing With Overwhelming Secrets.

This week my young adults in my socialization skills class and I had the opportunity to dialogue on how to handle overwhelming secrets.  It was discovered that many of them had to hold on to something very painful vowing to never reveal it.  Reasoning had to deal with either letting a person down that they cared about or simply feeling that someone would retaliate due to them revealing it.  In other words, some of our youth take the statement” Snitches get Stitches” very close to heart.

By the end of the this weeks session, we had the opportunity to discuss safer ways to reveal overwhelming situations.  Despite of the fact that we did not agree on everything we discussed, we all came to one conclusion.  Overwhelming secrets will continue to hunt you until you decide to set them free.

Next week’s social dynamic of discussion is dealing with grief.  I look forward to sharing with you how this session goes.  Until then remember that touching the life of  youngster is simply your investment in the future.
