That all depends on the secret and the situation.

The worse one I ever had was a good friend of mine's husband boasting about an affair he had, to my husband.

What was I to do -tell her this secret, as I had not been asked to keep it a secret but felt it WAS nevertheless a secret.

In the end I did not have the heart to tell her as i knew how much it would hurt her.

I am able to keep most secrets however sometimes I blurt something out on the spur of the moment!!!

I'm good at keeping secrets as long as I think that there is no harm in people not knowing it. If I think the person who has the secret is in the wrong, however, then I will feel obligated to tell the truth.
I am in your camp Bryony.
I wish Mr Abbott was in mine.

It all depends on who is telling the secret.
What is the secret?
I have in the past had to let another know of information given to me.
I am not allowed to keep certain secrets.
I can keep a secret, but it all depends on the nature of it.

I hate secrets. I have kept a couple where I know people might be judgmental about something that's none of their business. However I'm a bit of a blabbermouth and forget its a secret so it's best not to tell me anything.
Yes, the amount of secrets I have been handed by my friends/family members/partner is significant, but I am able to keep them locked in my brain.

I, however, cannot trust anyone with secrets of my own.
Mostly the former.

Absolutely
If someone has granted me the privilege of sharing their secret, it STOPS with me.
To divulge it, for me, would be anathema.
