Look, Ana, I get it. You’re afraid Kate will think you’re weak. You’re afraid you’re going to humiliate yourself by opening up. Deciding to talk about your feelings seems like a huge risk to you.
You’re just going to have to suck it up and do it anyway. If you continue to suppress your feelings like this, you’ll find yourself descending to an even more hellish level of misery.
Your friends want to help you. You should give them a chance.
(In case you’re wondering: Yes. I did write that all with my forehead.)
