Sharing

Something I’ve been hearing lots of from my therapist, my personal development workshops, and also just people at work, is that I should share more often. People don’t know what’s going on for me because I’m so reserved. It would be useful for them and me if I shared more.

However, I’m trying to figure out what I could/should share that I’m not already sharing.

It doesn’t seem right that I simply say the first thing that comes to my mind in any given moment. So how do I decide whether to share something or not?

I mean, it’s probably just my perfectionism driving this whole analysis. But at the same time, I’m really struggling to figure out how to improve in this area.

I think to improve at something, often people need to know at least two of:

  • The current state of things
  • What the desired result looks like
  • The actions that need to be taken to move forward

I feel like when it comes to sharing, I know where I stand. But I don’t have a good grasp of what good sharing looks like. Nor do I have a good grasp of what actions I should be taking.

So this is an area I’m continuing to look at. But at the moment, I feel sort of stuck.
