Scared to open up
hi anny my name is pheep and i am scared to open up because im afraid of rejection and a laughing in my face or becoming rivals afterward
Opening up is scary when you don't already know and trust someone. Begin from neutral. Get to know people by being yourself and see and how they respond to you before you trust them or don't trust them. Everyone is always showing us by their actions how they feel inside too. So you can better gauge how they feel and open up when you feel safe. Sometimes it took me opening up and being vulnerable for someone else to open up to me.. They felt scared too but when you show them that you trust them, it's easier for them to feel safe to open up too!
