Everybody does from time-to-time. It's important to be
it, but only with trustworthy people. In short, we can't be
open with everyone, that's not healthy either; don't trust untrustworthy people, trust is earned. Those of us that suffer from emotional difficulties are especially vulnerable to fall into this trap, so I can understand where you're coming from.
You don't have to tell all and be
open to everyone about
everything, however, it is important to share
openly and honestly with your chosen trustworthy few ... and in the healthy sense with those that may feel the impact of your condition.
Trust issues our common with many of us; it's important to find that healthy balance and it can be very difficult as we practice, ever sliding from one end of the spectrum to the other.
Start small, practice, and do it piecemeal ... I can only suggest what has worked for me. I'm pretty much an
open book these days, but that wasn't always the case. However, at present I am better able to gauge the situations that could be risky ... realistically ... and not based solely on my own fears, my issue.
Best of luck to you. Everybody has this problem, even those that don't have any emotional difficulties whatsoever. The only difference is in the degrees.
