1. Open up to friends who are supportive:
Choose friends who you completely trust and feel most comfortable with. Surrounding yourself with supportive and non-judgmental girlfriends can make these conversations easier.
2. Take your time:
Don't rush the conversation. It's okay to discuss the topic over multiple conversations if needed. Gradually opening up will help you feel more comfortable. If you're feeling shy or uncomfortable, it's okay to admit it.
3. Start with a relevant story:
Sometimes, sharing a relevant anecdote or story can be a good way to ease into the conversation. It can be something you have read, heard or experienced indirectly.
4. Choose the right time:
Wait for a comfortable and private moment when you and your friends are relaxed and not in a hurry. Avoid starting such conversations in public.
5. Ask for their perspective:
Encourage a two-way conversation by asking your friends for their thoughts or experiences on the topic. For instance, you can ask, ‘Have any of you ever felt this way?’ or ‘How would you handle a situation like this?’
