3. Be honest with yourself, and others
Do not keep those closest to you away from what you’re going through.
Those that love you will want to be there for you, and your relationships will grow as a result.
I lost someone close to me not because of what I was going through, but because I wasn’t honest with them about it, and it is my greatest regret. Don’t make the same mistake.
For me, in the end it caused more pain than the original source of pain, and again, prolonged my journey to healing.
