When You Are No Longer Friends With Someone

When you are no longer friends with someone, respect the secrets they shared with you. It’s Called Integrity.

One of the most basic rules of friendships really should go without saying, since it is truly about going without saying: Never break a friend’s confidences.

Sometimes, nothing feels better than “telling all” to a friend. Perhaps you’re recounting the most amazing first date ever, or describing what a fool you made of yourself at the bar, or revealing something you just found out that maybe you should not have. We use our friends as sounding boards for the big decisions and the small decisions in our lives. We trust them with our secrets, because we know that they won’t tell a soul.

Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.” “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.” “If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it.
