linux 'find' command

Not without trying, I have failed to find a way of asking:

find -name 'filename'

to only tell me about results in directories it can access by dint of the permissions of my account.

It returns for every directory it can't access, a line saying 'permission denied' along with the directory name.

I want to tell it OK, don't try and search it then, and don't bother telling me about it either.

However a scan of "man find" reveals once again that linux is not my favourite operating system, but not a lot else.
