Should I not open the email?

There is this email which I don't want to open because I know it will cause anxiety for me.

I have work to do. At the same time, the consequences of not opening it are also dire, because it's time sensitive.

What should I do? Open or not open?

  • In the last 6 months, I've received 3 letters that were horrible to open.

    I opened them, and what I found inside WAS horrifying. I'm still not well, but it's not the worst that has happened to me. Opening them will teach you about life. Do it.

    You can also stay ignorant and live happily knowing you throw potential horror out with the garbage. This is bold and I think these people are really adept in living.

    • So I didn't open it, but I saw the first line.

      I don't think it's as horrible as I think it is.

      If anything I think it's insightful. The school that I received it from seems to be almost scared of me.

  • Suck it up and open it... It's just text.

  • If it's important, open it. If it's just drama, don't. People that send you bad stuff should stay out of your life.

    • It's from another University.

  • Bandaid. Rip it off. It's going to cause you more anxiety wondering what is in the email.
