    • I really like your post. I thought that the questions you were asking were interesting and thought provoking. Most of the questions you brought up I was able to ask myself. My favorite question that you asked was “Will I learn to be patient/ not give up?” I liked that question because for me it’s hard to stay calm and not give up. I liked how you also expanded outside “Questions for Myself” and asked questions about the world such as “Why are things over priced?” and “Will a woman ever be president?” Overall, I really liked reading your post I think you did a really good job creating these questions.

    • Deja, your perspective and experience on this subject is very intriguing. I am also someone with trust issues and know how you feel when you say, “when I have opened up, people showed me why I shouldn’t have.” Communication is difficult but also very rewarding at times. Here is a link to a source that has some tips for opening up and touches more on the subject. I found it quite helpful!

      Have you ever thought about the effects of being a good listener on being able to open up? It may help to start by listening to others problems before opening up about your own. Journaling is another interesting technique that could help you express how you feel without the stress of other’s judgement. Just a couple thoughts!

    • I can relate to what you said because I also find it hard to open up to others. But I think that once you do others will be accepting and helpful.

    • In our society, we sometimes find it hard to put ourselves in a position to open up to others. In my life, I can definitely relate to what you have to say. I tend to not be emotionally vulnerable with other people without feeling uncomfortable or needy in some way. It’s nice to know that others are experiencing the same problems that I experience. I wish I had all the answers as to why these challenges occur, and the factors that push them towards us.

      But from reading your response, I’m not sure if you would want to take to someone in person, so I will refer you to a website where you can talk to a licensed professional online. Therefore, it’s not too much pressure for you to open up to them in a vulnerable environment.
