I ask this question because ive realised that I often feel better if I discuss a problem with someone, even if it is just one person in private.
It doesn't even have to be in depth. It can be as simple as merely voicing a concern or anxiety. The very act of verbalising it to others appears to release the pressure and almost instantly induces an emotional 'pleasantness'.
The other side to this, though, is that there are some problems I cannot discuss, which are best left inside my head to be dealt with by my own systems.
So it is a duality to some extent, but I suspect that the first is more prevelant for me than the latter.
It could also be that the problems from the first are more of a social and physical nature, whereas the ones from the second are a product of a more intangible and less social nature.
I wasn't sure where to put this but here seemed best.
Incidentally one final question:
Do you come up with your own ideas or do others prompt you and you run with them?
