I know a lot of secrets. About myself and others. I’ll die never letting others know. Why? To protect others and myself. I don’t need the stress of worrying about someone else worry about me. As the infamous character Hayden Fox said on Coach, Bury it with a shovel, then bury the shovel.
Sound harsh? So are diseases. My advice: share what you must to get whatever support you need, but don’t overly share. We all have our own battles.
In this era of openness or “let’s talk about it.” Let’s don’t. As the late Stuart Scott said, Focus on the fight, not the fright. People are still judgmental, in denial, when it is not even them.
Share, and the cost/benefits will not likely be in your favor.
If you do share, exercise extreme caution.
