How to open up about your feelings


Authored by ARAG

It can sometimes be difficult to talk about your feelings and it’s common to feel worried about upsetting the people you care about, feel nervous about what people might think, or how opening up might affect your relationships.

You may feel it’s easier to talk to friends or family, or you might find that it’s easier to approach a professional first. There’s no right or wrong, but often those closest to us can be a valuable source of support.
