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.

As I was merrily working my way through my 100 Days of Cloud challenge, I was posting links to my articles across LinkedIn, Twitter and Reddit, not many people really replied, but then something happened. There were a few people that would reply to me more than once, or I would spot the same few people liking my posts all the time, so guess what I did? I had a look at their profile and started to see what they were posting about and to my amazement, wow there were doing similar things to me, and no doubt they were probably battling with the same doubts, or barriers that I was dealing with. so, I liked their posts as well, I offered them words of support and encouragement.https://jonnychipz.com/2021/07/26/you-should-start-learning-in-public-right-now

If you’re laughing at me right now, try to remember how ridiculously underfunded this endeavor is and how I’m kind of winging it with no one to ask but Google and YouTube, for the most part.https://theunhurriedpath.com/2021/01/12/learning-to-ask-for-help
