Recent news stories of ‘secret recordings’ have me wondering how I would handle it if I discovered I was being secretly recorded by somebody I trusted and/or loved.
It is such a gross violation of privacy and trust, I don’t know if I could ever recover or trust anybody, ever again.
I recall when my kids were younger (13-15), one of their friends posted a video on one of the social media sites, of her father having a parental meltdown because she (the friend) was spending too much time on her bleep phone, when instead, she should have been doing her homework. Of course, he had no clue he was being recorded, much less it was posted to social media for the world to see. His daughter thought he was hilarious, he much less so, to be embarrassed and shamed by his daughter.
It seems that so much of our lives are under surveillance today, that if I discovered a loved one violated my privacy by recording conversations or private moments, I don’t think I could ever forgive.
How would you handle it if you discovered you had been violated in this way?
