    Where do you go, and more importantly who do you talk to when you want to talk about personal/private issues?

    Do you go to family, friends, a therapist, EC, other websites, etc.?

    Just curious.
     
  2. Online friends usually. Sometimes irl friends but they just usually end up talking about their problems instead of helping me with mine tbh

    I do have a couple of friends that i talk to about personal issues since there the only people i feel comfortable telling.i do go a a student support worker at school that helps with my low self esteem and self harm. and then theirs EC for everything else.
    i would talk to family but i don't want them to worry about me.

    Friends.

    I have one or two friends I can share everything with, if I want to. But I usually keep to myself.

    I try to deal with things on my own, usually. Or I write, as a release. If I need to tell someone, it's friends. Close friends. Just one or two, usually.
    I'm also very close to my mother, and have been known to go to her in tears over something in my personal life -- but less, this past year.

    Offline, it depends on what I need to talk about. But nothing too deep, which is what the question is asking for.

    Online communities is probably the best I've got for that. But even then, I can be selective about what I share, for a variety of reasons.

    I'm not too picky, but I don't just talk to anybody who will listen. I usually want them to have a good sense of who I am and how I think.
    I have a few good coworker friends that I could talk to about anything. My parents are also good resources. For things that I prefer to keep private from my parents, one of our close family friends is my go-to lady.

    I talk to my boyfriend about pretty much everything, but if I need relationship advice or sage-wisdom, I'll hit up some of the above people or my brothers.

    There's a teamspeak server in which I meet up with friends. Then again, though, I don't speak much with people these days. At least more than the necessary.

    Nobody really, for minor issues I usually tend to go to my parents, but mainly just keep it to myself.

    Only myself on my personal accounts, which actually means thousands of strangers on the internet.

    Agree! I can talk here without being judge and without being somebody who I am not
