I just got a sudden depression/anxiety attack recently, to point it got me thinking to myself: "why am I limiting myself for family?". That very question sparks my whole identity, as a son, a brother, and the boy who dreams big, but have to keep low profile.
My question to you: what made you feel you are free from shackles of family? How, and why?
Why is it so difficult for some people to build trust?
Or to switch the perspective, why you find it hard to trust somebody?
Most of the time, it is because these people failed to show genuine vulnerability. The key is to trust then to be trusted. It is just like seek to understand before to be understood.
This is my take. What's yours?
