How do you reveal information about yourself comfortably? This means any information at all including very personal info you share with someone you trust. How did or would you go about that?

As for me, I've only ever really revealed information about myself whenever I find somewhere or someone I can trust somewhat and then just most of the time accidentally reveal information about myself if I had some sort of breakdown due to something. I've never really felt comfortable revealing information about myself and the only times I've done it and gotten more comfortable is whenever I breakdown due to something.

How do you reveal information about yourself comfortably?

I tell them that if they tell anyone else, I'm going to have to kill them.

Aside from revealing anything that can be used to track me down online (appearance, name, location)--I'm pretty much an open book about everything--even emotionally traumatic events in my life or embarrassing facts about myself. It's like a narration. I don't actually attach personally to what I'm typing.

Unless I'm feeling emotional.



I will hide all the motherfuckin' emotions from view. Ain't nobody need to see that shit. Being a close friend doesn't matter. I don't like to burden people with my irrationalities--I already know they're wrong, so what more can they do?

I'm not afraid to do it. I'm a guy.

Information is a pretty broad category. There are of course layers of such access intertwined with need to know, balanced by do I care or not.

Usually It takes a while for me to open up and disclose certain things about myself or even have a discussion about certain topics, I think it's a waste most of the time to do it, and exhausting to explain it in a comprehensible fashion, so I don't do it often. It's more like a time and energy management type thing and I'm quite picky about it, and if we're both not getting something out of it, usually it's not worth doing.

16, eh?

In the war movies it was suggested just reveal name, rank, serial number. It's pertinent information; nothing more, nothing less. In social situations it's a judgement call. Do be aware whatever you reveal about yourself cannot be taken back so choose wisely if you don't really know the individual. Sometimes your inner voice will be reliable advising / admonishing, often it may not be so keep that in mind re decision making about the reveal.

I don't know you or your situation but I sense the way your question(s) phrased you're shy to a degree. No shame being that way if you are. There are self-help books out there that purport to be helpful; unfortunately, though some of the recommendations that worked for the author or others may work for you other suggestions will backfire. Picking the winners re advice is an art in itself that may take years to finesse beneficially. And that's the crux of the matter. If 16 is your real age (believe it or not, the internet lies) just realize you are entering an arena of uncertainty many of us are still newbies at mastering. It's going to amount to a reflection of the accumulative experiences you encounter interacting with others throughout your life. You will make mistakes (none of us are perfect) but you will learn from those. And do not give up as doing so ensures you will remain stuck, uncertain, fearful.

It's a learning curve, Luna. Don't worry, over time all will be well. Good Luck. The rest of us are pullin' for you.

It's pretty easy for me to find people I can trust, but I'm slowly starting to finally be opened to people.

Sometimes it takes effort to talk to people xD I'm sorry! Don't get me wrong, I don't mind having a conversation with you, and I would rather laugh with you, not at you. I might not have the most knowledge like others, but I try ^-^ <(^-^)>

It depends on the information.

If I'm not comfortable with revealing it, I won't.

It depends on how much they reveal themselves to me, and I would reveal an equal amount.

But it can't just be anyone...I'd actually have to like you first.
