When you receive a piece of good news, who do you tend to share it with first?

Asked around town

Andrew Kenny

Personal trainer

I like to tell my mother first because receiving good news from me helps to keep us connected in a really positive way.

Well, if the news is something personal, I'm most likely to share it first with my wife and daughter. Anything that is more general though, I tend to share first with my email distribution group of former shipmates who served with me in the Navy. We are great friends and enjoy sharing good information with one another.

I usually tell my dad first because he has a really big mouth and likes to spread good news about his kids. And I like that if he shares the news, he is just being a proud dad -- instead of me having to tell people directly, which could come off as a bit self-impressed or self-aggrandizing.

Cory Cook

Bar manager

Besides my fiancee, I love sharing good news with everyone else in my close circle of friends. We all really enjoy lifting and building each other up, by sharing good news. It really helps us all, especially if any of us are having a bad day.

Bruno Mejia


Normally, my mom. We share a great connection and communicate frequently about good things and bad things. It makes me feel good to get good news off my chest and make her feel as great about it as I do.
