Telling my biggest secret

Your Question

How do I tell my best friend my biggest secret without feeling like their judging me?


Hey there, thanks so much for reaching out!
First off, let us say that it takes a lot of courage to even consider sharing your biggest secret with someone, especially a best friend. It’s completely normal to feel nervous or worried about how they might react. But remember, your best friend is someone you trust and care about, and they probably feel the same way about you. So, take a deep breath and trust in your friendship.
When you’re ready to share, find a quiet and comfortable space where you can talk openly and honestly. Start by expressing how much your friendship with them means to you and how important it is for you to confide in them. Let them know that what you’re about to share is something personal and sensitive, and ask them to listen without judgment.
It’s ok to feel vulnerable, but remember that your best friend is there to support you, not to judge you. If they truly care about you, they’ll appreciate your honesty and bravery in opening up to them. And if you’re still worried about their reaction, you can always reach out to trusted adults or Childline for additional support and guidance.
