10. Be wise about who you share with
One of my biggest regrets is that in my pain, I lost control and at times shared more with people who either didn’t want to hear it, or it wasn’t appropriate to share with.
I lost relationships, and my reputation was ruined in some places. It’s important to be honest, but do so in a safe environment with people you know will love you and not be judgmental towards you.
Again, this will save more challenges for the future. I’m in the position of rebuilding some relationships that were ruined – and some seem beyond repair.
While I believe all relationships can be restored with God’s grace, if I had been wiser about who I shared with and how, a lot more pain would have been spared – both for me, and for others.
