Knowing the Worst in People

+ No comment yet
We all know the best things about our friends, family and others, but more often than naught, we can't say the same thing about the worst in them. And, it's important we don't either.

The best things and the worst things don't have the same effect. The worst things are like poison. The best things are more like medals or other adornments -- they look good, and make the person better, but only when you "see" it or when it's on display. The worst just contaminates.

And yet, we can't keep secrets; we don't want to keep secrets. It's our nature. Just look at the success of sites like PostSecret. Heck, it's probably better for you.

Everyone needs someone to see their demons. At least, I think so. But, we can't let everyone see them.
