Exclamation personal - November 16th 2012, 03:12 PM

what things would you guys consider personal and not share anyone other than a trusted adult or parents my guidance counsellor is making me do this cause apparently im to open and I need to learn some bounderies about what to share with whom and what not to share

There is always someone who cares about you. It may not seem like it but there is. I can promise you that much.

Well, I know that there are some things that I wouldn't share with everyone, like talking about my feelings with the guy who stands with me at lunch, but I have best friends who I share everything with. I don't think it has to be limited to a trusted adult. I don't share personal things with my parents, I share them with a friend...

Hey there,

Well, everybody's thoughts on this will differ. I wouldn't tell people things I should share with my therapist unless I desperately need advice on something (I come here now for that), but lying by omission, which means, leaving things out unless asked. You could do that for certain things of bring up the topics of what you NEED to discuss, not "gossip" to people. Not that I'm accusing you of gossiping of course, it's just the word which fits. Don't share things that you shouldn't, but if you feel like it's wrong to discuss with friends, such as secrets then keep them to yourself. Some things are better hidden away rather than out in the light.

I think its up to the individual. Me, I'm very private and am very limited in what I share outside my boyfriend and 1 or 2 very close friends.

If you feel like you "need" to talk or share something then thats ok but like Jay said, if someone has trusted you with something, then dont gossip (for want of a better word!)

A fun, and often annoying, thing about people is that we are all different. One mans 'you're to open' is another mans 'you never open up'. Really I think it depends on who you're talking to for example, you might talk to your friends about sex, but not your parents, and there are probably things that you would only talk to your parents about.

And honestly, being an open person is a peafectly good thing, no worse than being a very closed person. it all comes down to who you are talking to, and what about

(Once again, Coenred fails to give any real advice and just sprouts vague generalisations )

Women are women, regardless of sex,
and men are men, in the same respects.

You can be both, or a mix of the two,
or you can be neither, if that's what suits you.

But people are people, whatever their parts,
because what really matters, is inside of our hearts.
