I'm thinking of confiding in the religious leader near where I live.
I'm going to talk to him about everythng that's going on. As of a few weeks ago, he didn't really know me, at all, really. But that's changed since the trip and stuff.
He knows my name. I've even sat with him and his wife a few times while we were away. They were (and still are) very sweet people and seem very open.
I asked his wife about talking to him and she said that yes, congregants are allowed to confide in him and many do. And that its completely confidential (of course, to a certain extent--safety boundaries still exist, which is GOOD).
He's not available to meet for a bit over a month because he's busy and stuff. But I may talk to him when he gets back. Do I email him to ask ahead of time how it works?
Do I wait?
Is this even make sense to talk to him?
Advice would be nice.
