Default Re: I need some advice from fellow ocd sufferers!

My advice to anyone who's wanting to share something (anything) that's very personal and very revealing and very meaningful, and something they might be very sensitive about, is to ask yourself, be very clear with yourself, what the goal is. What exactly is it you're hoping to get, and then, what are the chances of you getting it by sharing it with that particular person.

Very often, people have this real need to share with others (which is understandable), but they don't take into account the reaction of the receipient (which can be unfortunate). Think carefully not just about your hopes, but their probable reaction, and plan accordingly.
