I hardly ever think that what I do or say is taking the moral high ground but something has happened recently that made me think about moral issues. I never share a secret and so I expect the same from the people around me. But, who do you trust? I know I can trust a friend I have had for the last 30 years. I have been told so many secrets by so many people and sometimes I wonder if telling Dave counts as breaking the trust, but I know deep down, that it will be a betrayal. And so, I have secrets from my husband. I am the keeper of people’s sad / bad / not good things. Things that have happened to them, feelings that they have for other people, situations they have found themselves in. So, recently a friend shared something with me that was sacred – but she shared it with other people as well and one person broke her confidence which set about a chain reaction of events. People had to hide the truth of what they knew and I had to act in a way that conflicts with my moral compass. I want to tell the person to be aware and to not share her secrets, but if I tell her then she might cotton on to the fact that her secret has already been shared. She is going to find out eventually and I imagine she is going to be cross and angry, hurt and devastated. Even though the secret has been shared from a place of love, is that a good enough reason to break someone’s trust? I am in conflict here and most often when I face a dilemma I cook something to still my mind. I create a recipe to share with you, my reader. I let you into my confidence by not keeping kitchen secrets.
