Torn by conscience, did I talk too much?
posted by easilyconfused to Human Relations (8 answers total)
I had a crush on one of my friends. I confessed my feelings and we seem have moved on.
However, before and after my confession, I have told a group of my close friends in details about my friend/crush, my feelings, my thoughts, and even parts of their love lives as they were interlocked with my own story. And I am so torn and I feel that I've betrayed my friend's trust. Also, I think it's extremely unfair since I asked my friend to keep whatever happened between us while I had to vent/rant to my own friends (and some of those my other friends do talk).
What could I do? Should I own up and tell my friend that I might have slipped some info about their private life and promise not to do this again in the future because I cherish their friendship and would hate to lose them in my life?
