Strangers Are Friends and Allies
Have you ever felt that talking to a stranger would be more therapeutic than talking to your parents or best friend? Your parents and best friend may be the people who know you best, but if you are confiding some pretty deep stuff with them, they may be a bit judgmental. The advice and feedback they have to offer might not be good enough.
Opening up to a stranger is a completely different experience. They have no idea who you are, your history, or your habits. They do not have a preconceived notion to judge around. They have a more open mind and can find feedback in places parents and friends might not look. They have a 100% outside opinion, and this could be the most helpful to you.
We are not saying that if you are in trouble you should ignore your loved ones completely...
