Keep things within four walls

In Tamil, there is a saying that we are supposed to keep family matters private. They say anything that happens within a family should remain within the four walls. I often wonder why this was preached very fervently.

As children our role models often are our parents. However today our lives are vastly different than them.

How do we problem solve the situations and confusions that plague us day to day? By keeping it within four walls? Or opening up and discussing with other like minded men and women?

Sometimes I wonder if this philosophy was created as a way to protect men. To allow men to do whatever they wished without their reputation getting broken.

My philosophy is “Anything that hurts or bothers me, will not stay within the four walls.” What do you guys think?
