Need to talk?
Talking about a problem can often make you feel better. If you keep your worries secret they can grow and grow inside.
It’s a lot easier to solve a problem when there are two heads working together on it. But, it’s not always easy to know how to start the conversation.
Often we don’t talk to friends about things we’d really like to talk to them about because we feel embarrassed, shy or ashamed.
The thing to remember is that whatever it is you’re embarrassed about, a good friend isn’t going to laugh at you, judge you or put you down, they’ll listen, try to understand and try to help you feel better or find a solution. And that’s why people find that talking to a good friend about a problem usually does help.
