Letting yourself be emotionally exposed is difficult, but you can do it -- and you should. Your bravery has been proven to other people many times over, but have you proven it to yourself? Someone close to you wants to know more about your inner thoughts, and they want the truth. Do not candy-coat your feelings in an effort to make them seem more mainstream or acceptable. What's the point of that? You have to let it all come out without editing a word.
