“Did you tell her you had one?” I asked.
“I told her I did. Then she asked me why.” he said.
So of course I was curious how he responded, asking him, “What did you tell her?”
He said he told her, “Let’s just say... that I can hurt people.”
Then I asked, “How did she respond to that?”
He smiled and said that she didn’t say anything else.
Hmmm... I think we need to work on what he should tell others. I know that he isn’t comfortable telling people he has a mental illness, but going this direction could backfire on him.
It’s another one of those moments when I wish he could just be honest and people would understand.
