REVEALING Too MUCH ABOUT
YOURSELF IS NOT SUCH A Go D IDEA.
Advice: " If you ever do anything', never let your left hand know
what your right hand is doing."
The bible quotes this advice to mean not to put on a show
when you do a good deed. However, to the Black folks I talked tor
it meant something else.
It is advice they give to anyone who has been betrayed and
disappointed by what he called his best friend. Secrecy is your
best policy, and you should never relate your personal business
even to friends, they said.
You never know what the outcome of revealing your personal
business to the wrong person might cause. To let someone expose
your Personal business is to let someone else control your moral
Judgement. Never let your best friend know what you are doing
behind close doors. But if he is suspicious, let him stay in
doubt. Be strong enough to let him know that it'" not any of
his business anyway.
If you need advice when you are in doubt cautiously relate to
the individual what you need advice about. Never tell him the
exact event. Get near the subject but " outfox the fox! "
Here’s what’s next.
