Healthy relationships, we hear from everyone, are all about honesty. Your partner must be your lover but also the person you trust with all your secrets and thoughts.
They call it the secret to peaceful relationships, and one should never despise the value of sharing things with your partner. After all, you both chose to be together — that must mean something.
Define the relationship. Really, sit back and think about it. Its definition is not so straightforward as saying, “you must share everything with your partner.” It’s easy to explain that: relationships are complex since it takes different people to establish a connection.
Keeping a few of your thoughts just to yourself can be a good policy for that, too — because facts present themselves differently to different people. There are cases where you can be damaging your other half just because you decided to share certain information.
In an abusive relationship, for example, the abused is coerced to share all the information they have all the time. Where they have been, who have they seen, you get it, the perfect mixture of a toxic relationship. Is that sincerity? No, it’s a mental issue.
In the end, it’s always up to you to decide what to share. That doesn’t mean you should avoid discussing things with your partner; it means not everything must be revealed.
