WHY I DON'T READ HAMILTON LISTS

it's nothing against you
  1. I want Hamilton to be all mine.
  2. I don't want anyone else to know about it /because/ I want it to be all mine.
  3. But, I still want them all to be successful and get all the praise they deserve.
    Don't get me wrong. I know that if Hamilton wasn't so well-known it wouldn't be where it is today.
  4. I've already had a bad experience of sharing something with someone that I held close to my heart.
  5. I wanted it to stay between us.
    I wanted it to be my secret. I thought they were smart enough to understand that when I told them not to tell anyone, they wouldn't.
  6. However, they were the kind of person who though it would be great if they shared it with all of their friends.
  7. I think it's because I found Hamilton for myself that I want to keep it for myself.
  8. When I read other lists about it, makes it more clear to me how much other people love it too.
