It's really not a good idea to open up and say how your really feeling

All it does is create more problems and makes things worse!

sometimes ....

I guess it depends on who you share with, what you share, and how you share it.

I went to a counselor and would share and then only feel worse, but now I have a new counselor and she is really helpful and I actually feel good after talking with her.  I've had the same thing when sharing with friends ... one person I'd share with and just end up feeling worse and then a different one was really good at helping me feel better.

Sometimes that happens.  I think that is what therapy is good for, if you have the right therapist.  You also have to trust them too.  With friends and family memebers I've learned what to say, when and how to minimize conflict.

For me that could be true sometimes I suppose but, I usually always feel better when I get to say what im feeling.

It helps me to talk about what's going on. I learned to what to say and not to say to  certain people. When you have a therapist, it is important that you have trust.

Nope not for me. Every time I open my mouth I dig myself a deeper hole. Don't know if I can climb my way out this time, or even want to. I'm shutting down, going numb. This maybe the last straw, can't hold on any more

I guess it depends on who you share with, what you share, and how you share it.  sorry you had a bad experience.  You can always share here.  ~hugs.....

I suppose tht can be true. Try to find someone u cn trust who gives u positive feedback and the truth.

I feel much worse if I hold it in. But we are all different.
