“I deserve…. I have a right….”
Have you ever had anyone demand that you tell them something personal or act a certain way?
You have a say in how much you share with another person. No one has a say in what you choose to share with them about your life and your story except for you. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
It is your choice to share with another or not. What you share may be a testament to your relationship, your closeness, how much you trust that person.
Whatever comes from this decision will happen, but let it be from your choice. Do not allow others to dictate that must you share things about yourself with them.
No one is entitled to you or your story. You can allow them past your walls to see who you are and to share your past, but they do not have the right to demand access. No one has that right.
