Sometimes you bring things up and make people feel better, remembering something great about life, and sometimes you bring things up and let everyone down, or even worse feel insulted. Depending on what you are talking about, always be aware that, "For some people “going back there,” is not useful and can even exacerbate the problem."  Sure we have experiences in life, some shared, and some not, always be wary of how you present your experiences in life, as having lived through events occurring in time, with awareness of how others may feel when trying to identify their own feelings about the times, thats when thinking similarly about events does not feel well, between the sharer and the listener, who may similarly not feel well, as the one sharing becomes sick opening about their thoughts, and even sicker from the later thoughts and deductions about life thought by others, which is not in their control, everyones freedom to process events in their own way to their own understandings in life. Just because you have been through a lot, sadly doesnt make you an expert at overcoming mental health issues, especially if you talk about causes for your mental health issues, over what people think, how people think, what people assume, and how people judge you. One strategy for processing events described the benefits of "expressing thoughts and feelings without re-immersing in the trauma, helped. While the event cannot be undone, it can be rendered far less important and overshadowed by other things if thoughts are re-directed. "  Which is why someone going through a lot wouldnt want everyones thoughts directed at them, as they are going through something difficult in life, be further subjected to the analysis of those who are well or even worse those with no upper limit when it comes to attacking a subject they themselves did not go through personally, with their so-called expert hats on, pick you apart, for who you are, and for what you say, without care for how that may affect you internally, personally, or professionally. Thats not how to better understand peoples motivations and drives in life, by understanding their causes for illness, later in life, sometimes things dont hit you until later in life, everyone so free spirited around you, but when you get sick, no one can make you feel better, not even yourself, and thats the sad part about mental health issues, not feeling apart of the energy of a room, not lifted by others, drained, tired, uncomfortable, instead of confident proud, collectively speaking about your experiences in a way that you can be better understood, and left alone as normal, not focused upon for your disabilities in life, shortcomings, deficits, or choices in life. So don't be afraid to take your "mind on a different path. At any rate, talking about the problem does not always change things for the better."  The best of you occurs when you can be normal around others, and speak normally about things in life, other than speaking about your problems in life, being able to speak in a way that makes sense to others, is more important than not making sense at all.
