"don't share your problems"

i heard this quote yesterday, on a cd series called "eat that frog: 21 ways to stop procrastinating and get more done in less time":

"don't share your problems.
80% of the people that you share your problems with don't really care anyway, 
and the other 20% are kind-of glad that you've got them."

of course, real friends/family do care, but they also have their own lives to live, so problem-sharing is best kept to a minimum.  .on the other hand, "describing challenges to someone who is equipped and ready to help with a solution" makes perfect sense.
