Do you talk about your problems? Do you open it up with your family members or friends? I think, you should be. Why? Because , it might affect you not only emotionally but mentally. Yesterday, we got a news about one MedTech. student of this college who was hit by a bus on a highway. We were told that she is out of her mind, got naked and ran to the middle of the highway. When we checked her Facebook Account to get information about her family so that we can relay the message , we discovered that this student has a problem which keeps bothering her for many days already. It is only in Facebook that she releases what she feels. She is also not in good terms with her brother. She does not open up with her friends. Luckily, she survived and had fractured shoulder only. She is now in the hospital but not in a normal state of mind. So, what do we want? Open - up or lose your mind? Photo credit: fishandbicycles.com

That's true. It is not good to keep all your burdens within yourself.

So maybe now you realized that you have friends that you can always turn to whenever you need a shoulder to lean on.

Yes, releasing our emotions is very important. We should unload our burdens, because if not, we could become mentally disturb.

It is better to tell them everything that bothers you than to go to the mental hospital.

that is what friends are for. we can have friends who we trust and who we can open up ourselves to them, and get their pieces of advice should a problem arises

That's true.. There's always somebody who is willing to lend his ears and to share his heart. All we need to do is to open - up.

Open up isn't easy. because when you have this 'something' on your mind, you wanna make sure that someone you talk to is really want to listen to you. which is some kind of attention that we don't get in real life connection, that's why it's easier to open up via social media or a forum like this, where nobody really knows your flaws, so they won't judge you. Our generation is full of attention seekers who needs help.

For me, I don't want my life to be known to many people. In social media almost all of the people can read you posts. Things that are happening to your life will be known to them which sometimes will only create bad or negative reactions. For me, it's better to confide problems to somebody whom you trust and ready to listen. There is always somebody who wants to help us, like our mother, brothers or sisters or close friends. We can always get honest and sincere opinion or suggestions from them.

Sometimes you can't open up. Open up and get attacked.
