Of course, this is far from easy. We’re wired to want to be accepted, loved, and even respected. It’s can’t apply to all aspects of your experiences. But when it comes to sharing your own challenges in life openly, we promise you, if you realize that most all of these obstacles are things you can’t control, then you’ll be more apt to openly share with a therapist, close friends/family and maybe even the world. That freedom of knowing that someone or everyone out there knows your “shit” is as freeing as it comes. Try it. A life of greater freedom and mental health awaits.
