I just need some encouragement - December 3rd 2012, 03:00 PM

Tomorrow I'm planning to tell my coach/ex-teacher about my brother's cancer. I've been wanting to do that for a while. The thing is, I'm really, really scared.
I'm worried about what's going to happen and pretty much obsessing and freaking out over it...

So anything to help me out would be greatly appreciated

Why are you worried? What could his response be other than concern and sympathy? Be well.

What are you so worried about? There's a very good chance they're express sympathy. Having cancer is terrible, and talking about your brother's cancer must be painful. But it's important people know, in case he has a bad day with it and it effects you. It's important they know what's going on.

I'm not completely sure why I'm so worried. I'm just really nervous. And worried about what his reaction will be. I usually put up this calm, collected, never-fazed-by-anything front and that's the only part of me people know, so it's hard for me to talk about stuff like this...but it's been really tough for me lately and I know I need to.

I guess I just need you guys to convince me that I can do this. Help

My dad's a teacher, and he says that a lot of times, students will share personal problems/stories with him. I was actually surprised at how much this happens. My point is that teachers are probably used to hearing about this sort of thing and know how to handle it.

I know it's really hard to be honest, especially when you're used to acting calm and collected, but I think it will be helpful. It's so nice to have someone you can trust to talk to. I hope it goes well, and let us know!
