Weed out the Cynics / Contrarians and Fearmongers.
Find the right people to talk to. (Yes, the ‘helping or harming’ test apples to the people in your life too.) Share your thoughts and feelings, but don’t get swept up in pointless speculation. Stick to the facts and avoid the drama queens. Keep asking yourself, ‘Is this conversation helping or harming me in my quest to feel good and function as best I can right now?’.
