They cover self-disclosure in our culture, the rise of therapy, how if you self-disclose publicly you’re opening yourself up to other people’s opinions and interpretations of you personal experiences, when self-disclosures can be putting you at risk, and whether you might be self-disclosing for the wrong reasons, such as the search for validation. Bridget talks about how self-disclosures in her writing help her connect to people, Jeren weighs the delicate balance of self-disclosures as a therapist, and having to judge the benefits and potential costs of being so open about his life on a podcast. They discuss vulnerability as a strength vs. weaponized vulnerability and empathy, sharing parts of your story that contain other people, and their encounters with the old school ideas that good therapists don’t self-disclose and good writers don’t either.

The last year of the most ridiculous decade. There was graduation, a marriage, a divorce, a few different states, a few stabs at new careers.

I had to leave my dormitory because some government agents decided to use my dormitory as a place for quarantine, without providing me with any compensation (Hi Dinas Kesehatan, are you there?). I lost my phone in Palembang because apparently some folks thought that taking away other people’s phone while he is walking down the street is not an evil action. I also lost an internship opportunity because Google stupidly decided that it would put the acceptance email on the spam box. These things were out of my control and to face such occurrences were definitely maddening. It felt like a bomb just dropped in your brain and the only thing you could do was to think “Why?”https://alifgono.wordpress.com/2021/07/09/self-wow-ing
