Hi. Essentially all I'm asking is if you've withheld seemingly important information whether it is about suicide, self harm, abuse or mental health from family or friends and if you think you've made the right decision by doing so (or not doing so) I ask because I've withheld alot of information about suicidal feelings and self harm from my family and a bit from my closest friend.I wanted to see others opinions on the matter. I think I've made the right decision by not telling my family as they honestly just don't get it and they used to have very awful views on suicide (not anymore since my aunt but I still remember it being said that it's cowardice to kill yourself) Since I "came out" to them with very little info about my self harm and suicidal ideation? It's been humiliating and I don't think I could've coped if they knew more. Now on the other hand I've told my therapist something about suicide that I've denied to my closest friend. Mostly on the basis that I don't want her to be affected by my problems as she has her own stuff to deal with and maybe I'm a little conscious about how she'd view me (which is awful because she is not like that). In this case I think I've made the wrong decision but it is what it is. So uh thank you for your time.
