Should we try not to wear our feelings on our shoulder?

    There are times where showing our emotions is an asset. Other times, it can be a liability.

    Showing emotions is appropriate people we trust and when vulnerablity is needed. For example, when discussing our feelings with a close loved one, showing that we are willing to be vulnerable helps build trust. It also allows us to express our feelings versus holding them in.

    When people have not shown themselves to be trustworthy, it can be best to be more guarded with our feelings.

    Some people simply do.........

    Personally, I do not.

    There are those like "them", and there are those like " me".

    Personally, and very personally, speaking,

    keep the negative ( the BS ) to yourself.   I have a goal, and I do not need your distractions.

    I am your coworker.............share these things with your trusted, and valued friends.

    With certain people you can let your feelings show, but even then you have to realize when they've heard enough. With other people, you should be very careful what you reveal. If you're not sure you can trust them don't let them in.
