The Paradox of Sharing

I am reblogging this post by Alexis Rose, because I believe that most trauma survivors can relate to the dilemma of trying to figure out how much you should share about your history with acquaintances, friends, and family members. I imagine that most of us have experienced that awkward moment where you’re on the verge of jumping into a conversation about a particular place, or a holiday, or being a certain age, or going through a rite of passage β€” but you keep your thoughts to yourself, because you know that what you were about to say will have the effect of a stinky skunk crashing a dinner party.
