  1. Some words are better left unsaid. Although we may be the best of friends, but there are some emotions that i would not like to share with you. In the deep recesses of my heart, in a cocoon, reside some wishes, some dreams, some aspirations that will only be mine. No one will ever get access to it. These thoughts will drive us through the struggle of life, boosting our strength and guiding us through the upheavals of existence.

  2. Every one wishes for something at some time or another with all their heart. some of those wishes can only be understood by their heartbeat. Thus kept in a secret wish list.

  3. We have few wishes, hidden just deep down under heart. The wishes we
    reveal not, to anyone. The reasons for having them on a secret list
    1. Fear of being Judged.

    2. Fear of being criticised.

    3. We may think, if they are revealed, we would have nothing left as
    solemnly ours! Yes, these wishes are our solemn possessions, we
    preserve in a box, to be shared with none!

    4. They act as driving force to trigger our actions to achieve same!

  4. Every one has a secret wishlist as there are some wishes which we don’t like to share! Not even with our near & dears ones.. And there is also a reason that we may have some crazy wishes and are scared, shy to share it!

  5. The forbidden fruit, our dreams, things we talk to our selves secret wish is not only things we desire but think are beyond possession but also desire to have spoken something instead of what was said or having acted in a way rather than way one actually did. These are kept secret not because we think someone will judge us but because we think we judged rightly.

  6. A secret wishlist usually contains desires that one is embarrassed/shy of speaking out loud. Why so? One, a person may fear being judged for having such desires. Two, he feels people may doubt his/her capabilities to fulfill them. Three, they are something a person has no control over. Lastly, those wishes are so precious, so priceless that there’s a slight fear that it may get lost in the universe if not kept a secret. And thus, a secret wish list to harbor hopes, dreams & desire and at the same time, protect them from anything that may prevent them from turning to be true. 🙂

  7. It is said that a wish or a wish-list, once shared, gets grounded and so it must necessarily remain a secret!

    Why do all of us have a secret wish-list?

    Well, by keeping the list a secret we play games with ourselves… and are always wanting to surprise ourselves when any of the wishes in our list happens to get fulfilled.

  8. Secret wish sounds creepy and attention seeking at times. Well, when asked to ponder upon the thought why do people have secret wishes, a multiplicity of weird thoughts seep “secretly” into my mind. One common reason could be because one is able to imagine oneself in the best of moments (which hardly materialize). It’s the best source of self-satisfaction for those who limit themselves from daring. Wishes do come true but a SECRET wish earns itself a two on ten when it comes to performance, because “it” fears being mocked at by the bunch of losers out there. It’s a definition of suppressed desires in the race of imbibing endurance. People prefer rewarding and punishing oneself by having their own secrecy wish remains a secret only till the time they don’t go about announcing that they do have a secret wish. Secret wish is keeping oneself away from losing but what’s the need when we all know of “Try and try unless you succeed”. Concluding with why do we have secret wishes, I want to know if other creatures have them too.
