People who say they have no secrets are most likely lying. Everybody has a secret they don’t want others knowing about. Although most people have small secrets that would not hurt a fly, some people have really big secrets that could be devastating should they come out.

These types of secrets are usually ones that will have a negative impact on other people and these types of secrets will most likely go to the grave with that person. Take a look at the 10 most common secrets that people keep hidden from the ones they love.

Infidelity: This is possibly the most popular secret which is why it’s placed at number one on the list. Statistics will tell us that many people find it very difficult to remain faithful to their spouses and partners. It’s not surprising that infidelity tops the list as many people would fight like hell to keep cheating on their spouse a secret, given that it may end their relationship or marriage. The chances of ever trusting someone again after being cheated on is another reason why it is such a closely held secret.

Love- Many of us keep love a secret, especially when we love someone but there is no love in return. It is awfully embarrassing to put your love out there only to find that the other person does not feel the same way as you. You may have a secret crush on someone that is inappropriate, like a teacher at school. The last thing you want is your friends knowing about this as it could get around the school and be embarrassing for you and perhaps the teacher involved too.

Past Life Secrets: Many people have done things they are not proud of; in fact many have done stuff they wish they could forget. Perhaps they have a criminal record or they did things in the past that hurt others and do not want to go there. Revealing all of the stupid things that people do when they are younger would not be easy, so some people choose to leave it out and pretend like it does not exist.

Hate: When people experience feelings of hate, this too is usually a deep, dark secret. Some may be part of a dysfunctional family and they may really hate their family, however they keep their mouths shut and just put up with it, while these feelings of hate just burn away inside their minds. We can’t choose our family, but we can choose how we let them treat us.

Cheating: There are plenty of cheaters in the world beside unfaithful husbands and wives. But this is about people who cheat others generally. People who lie to get a job, or cheat in exams at school or university or it could be about people who cheat each other. Your mate sells you a car that breaks down and he refuses to refund the money you paid. A secret like that would be damaging if it got around.
