    I had a best friend who I trusted immensely and told nearly all my secrets too. They didn't really tell me that many secrets but we were still really close. I used to be a real idiot in the past and backchatted a lot about others to my 'best friend'. Recently, we've had a fall out and one of my friends that I had backchatted about also messaged me asking about the things I had said about him. I fear that they are telling the people the things I said about them & that is putting me in a tough situation as I regret it too and because of that one person confronting me about things I said about them I have a feeling I will be confronted by all of those people I had spoken about. What should I do?

    Don't talk about people lmao

    Jk they're not friends if they can't keep your secrets to themselves, just drop them

    you need to own up to what you've said / don't go back on it making things even messier, if confronted own up to it apologise if needed and if possible don't put yourself in this situation again

    Don't worry about it. Be confident and don't let other people tease you for the past. You'll be fine.
