Learning To Share Our Feelings
There are a number of steps you can do to share our feelings with someone.
|Find someone such as a good friend who you can trust and with whom you can share your feelings. |
| Join a support group. |
|Open up and be genuine when you talk to your friends. Don't keep a 'stiff upper lip'.|
|If necessary cry. Crying is a great tension reliever. (Yes, adults
do cry too and it is OK for men to cry. Don't keep it within you.) |
Support groups work
because you can put your problems in perspective. Others also have problems and, in fact,
it may be worse than yours. In support groups, people can use their experiences to help
others, and be helped in the process.
Make sure that the support groups do not get you into sympathy seeking and
whining and complaining.
