It really depends on the situation. I`ve got a few close friends and a great family I know I can confide in or turn on if I have a problem, but I prefer not to. It`s not that I would think it makes me weak to depend on others it`s just that I want to sort it out myself. If I think about it and still don`t know what to do I`ll ask for the advice myself, otherwise I won`t. I take my time in sorting out my thought and feelings. Sometimes my family snaps at me because of that and I`m provoked into telling what`s troubling me. I dislike people who tend to complain over every little thing out loud, it`s not like it helps and it`s bad energy. Of course keeping it all in bottled up isn`t good either, so when I feel overwhelmed I usually write it down in my moleskine. But it does feel good when someone just listens to what you have to say, without intrerupting you and saying unnecessary things.
I`m a sceptic when it comes to strangers, I usually think they have a hidden motive for asking personal questions. It takes time and patience until I really trust someone enough to confide in. It`s pretty ironic, cuz people tend to like to confide in me.
~I picked the second option because I do express my feelings/thoughts openly when I feel like it. I`m more open with my agreement/disagreements.
