The Roman philosopher Seneca said around 2000 years ago, “If you want your secret to being saved, save it yourself.” It is not about keeping secrets, but it’s keeping specific personal things to yourself which are not preferable to tell others.
The sages of India’s philosophy are on reflections on problems which deal with things that we should not tell with our inner being. The fundamental aspect of Hindu Philosophy is its practical nature.
The thought of the Hindu sages was focused on solving the fundamental issues of life even from its creation. In order to the attempt to have a better life, the wisdom is born.
Here are 7 aspects of each person’s life that should stay secret according to the Hindu Philosophy.
7 Things You Should Never Reveal
- Don’t Reveal Your Family Issues
If something happens in the family, it should stay in the family. Sharing your family issues can be a relief to you, but sharing personal issues with a few people makes the image that is huge than what they really are.
And you cannot take this back. And other people may not see your issues as they are and for sure they will make certain judgments without knowing the depth of the issue.
This is not good for you. So, solve your family issues within the home and always keep them behind closed doors.
- Don’t Brag About Your Charitable Acts
Don’t boast of being generous and of having done some act of charity as nobody likes it. It is really good and an excellent virtue and the world need more generous people. But you can see this as a precious treasure and keep it to yourself.
- Don’t Tell Everything You Hear
Of sometimes, you can hear others talking. Even if you didn’t want to know that in the first place this can happen.
But, don’t take this issue home. Hearing bad and negative news might impact you negatively, and it will only waste your energy.
You should also remember that taking that negative burden home doesn’t bring anything good to you.
- Keep Your Spiritual Knowledge to Yourself
You must keep spirituality to yourself since this is believed to be a treasure, which has to do with how people see the world differently.
Everyone might not share your spirituality, your analysis of life, your thoughts and ideas. So, keep this to yourself to avoid being questioned in personal and profound aspect.
- Keep Your Projects to Yourself
Don’t share your future plans with others as they are yours and intimate. There’s no such thing as a perfect idea. Therefore your future plans might be sabotaged by envious individuals who resent having no good idea.
And also your plans and projects might be a victim of criticism, or people might look for flaws and defects. So, first finish your projects and then talk about them.
- Don’t Reveal Intimacies
You should keep specific questions personal. Every person must stay in oneself and also limit ourselves to subject them to a private and introspective reflection.
As there is no point in revealing your issues regarding food and sleep, you must keep for yourself.
- Keep Your Heroic Acts to Yourself
If you have done any act of heroism, or you had a courageous attitude, don’t tell them to others.
You would get your well-deserved recognition, while if it was something which wasn’t seen you can still get the needed recognition without telling about it if other people saw this.
This recognition can be personal, and you can use it for self-admiration. You should remember that it is necessary to keep certain things for yourself as that is the only way you can preserve your psychological health.
You should remember that personal identity is preserved by making certain lines of protection.
