You are your own secret weapon.
Those who know you understand what you are doing when you describe physical ills. They understand that you are very careful in your description of details. They understand that you are sharing.
And then there are The Interpreters, The interpreters may think that your attention to detail reveals that you are complaining.
Complaining is an indirect way of asking for help. The Interpreter must interpret when confused by honesty. Indirectness and a lack of self-awareness are the tools of The Interpreter.
Sharing on the other hand, contributes to the good of all.
When the Interpreter asks how you are doing, say GREAT.
“Daniel in the Lion’s Den” is a great metaphor for the Detailer who is surrounded by Interpreters.
This remark is mildly sarcastic. Sarcasm attempts to bridge the gap between complaining and sharing.
You are your own secret weapon. Yours is a gift to be shared.
