Do you tell all your business to your friends? Is myLot a place for release?

Do you tell you friends everything? Or are there things that you keep just between you and your family? There are some things I tell here that I wouldn't tell my friends. MyLot is a place I can go to release. Where I can tell the truth and most of the time I'm not judged, if I am, its okay. Because you or no one else know who I am. So do you tell all?

Nope im a very private person and i never tell anything to personal weather im on the net or talking to my friends in my real life and everything is so permanent here so what you say here is forever so i try not to post anything that i wouldnt want the world to know same with my friends.

you can be close to someone with out telling them every single detail of your life, i have had no problem's getting close to people there just some things i dont discuss no matter what, especially on the net and my friends understand and respect that and they know that there's certain subjects that are off limits, some people can be free and open and can pretty much talk about anything and im just not like that the only person im completely open with is my family.

I tell some things sometimes, but it depends on what mood I'm in. I feel mylot is a great place to discuss and get really good feedback!

I think your right. Mylot is a good place to get good feed back, and good advice. It depends on how I feel a lot of times what I share or tell here. Thanks for the comment.;-)

Yes I do, I am very open, honest and upfront and if I have a problem in my life I will come to Mylot, to me Mylot is like therapy, my own personal counselor, I have made wonderful friends here and they have supported me, offered me practical advice. When I went through a very bad relationship last year I told them everything! I laid out my troubles and didn't spare a thing, some might think I am mad! But at the end of the day I got some great answers for being honest and open and I was able to use the advice to good use. Sometimes it's easier to talk to strangers and people behind a computer screen than it is your nearest and dearest or friends face to face. I have always been judged in life so getting judged on Mylot ain't no different, I guess you have heard it all. I needed the release and I needed a place where I could pour my heart and soul out, Mylot was there and Mylot helped through a nasty part of my life so I have no problem telling my business to friends on Mylot, and strangers too for that matter

I fell like if I'm judged, who cares, they don't know me anyways. But I don't have a problem telling some one on mylot what I think. I want be nasty, but I am blunt. I feel like if you don't have anything in common with the post or you can't benefit that person in any way, move on. There is no reason to hurt some one feeling on purpose.

I don't tell all here, there are some things that I won't talk about period, no matter who is listening. But for the most part I do see MyLot as a place to vent. I guess its because of the anonymity you have here. Like you said, no one really knows who you are here, only what you post, so if someone were to judge what you said on here, it doesn't really matter because they don't know the steps that you've walked to get to this point in your life.

We both share! I am also open here in Mylot! I love asking opinions here and advices![/i]

I agree, I can say whatever I like here and I dont have to worry about what others think. If someone judges you, who cares? I pretty much have shared my life story here at one time or another without any negative feedback. I do have a few friends that I can talk to and not be judged as they are closer to me then most sisters are and I know most of their secrets too. Hugs, Tianna

I haven't been here that long, but I feel that I am beginning to open up a little more ever day. I know I have met some people I feel are friends here. Thanks for your time.

I do not think I have the capacity to tell all, to anyone, except maybe my husband. I am closer there than anywhere. I am pretty free with some things here, but not everything. In the past when I have said some things and stated some facts there have been people who flat out said I was lying. I am not going to fight, so I just keep stuff to myself.

You know, who cares what they think. Who are they anyways. Strangers. This should be a place where you can say what you want. Without hurting someone else. Where you can be your self. If you can't, why come. No one knows you. Its a place you can let go and be who you are, if you can't anywhere else. I say to hell with the people that say your ling. they don't know what you have done in your life. Tell your stories.

Walk..I say some things here cause my family wouldn't want to hear about past things and who here cares..lol..half the time no one believes me anyway ..now sadly there are some here that can't take jokes to liven up when someone needs it..if i don't feel good i like to laugh to take my mind off but all it takes is someone to blow it and call you names to make the stress come back ten fold... I know alot of people but sadly i wouldn't trust half of them..they think cause i have a store i'm rolling in dough..no thats the store down the block making pizza's..lol.. huggs

And the pizza store in return buys more dough. My husband owns his business, people think we are rolling in the green stuff also. Do they not know about bills.? HELLO! I don't tell my family stuff either. I'm used to the name calling. I get enough of that at work. There are so many haters where I work, I've just learned to like who I am, and to hell with everyone else. I have two really good friends, and I don't tell them my family business.
