Sharing your feelings and emotions with others not only helps you feel better, but also increases the feeling of intimacy and connection with the other person, because you are letting you know better. It also helps you express your feelings, often a source of stress due to the effort required for concealment. Remember that conversation lets others know you well.

You are supposed to go slowly, always starting from self-acceptance, accepting yourself as you are now. Note that accepting you as you does not mean you are not going to change, but only that you will not punish or despise you for being you but you are going to want to be like you, with defects that you have at all times. At the same time, you can find ways to overcome these shortcomings. A good resource to learn further in this regard is Mens Weekly, an online information source.
