There are many times in our lives when we could use an ear to listen and help us through the things that we are struggling with. I can do that.

At First it may, just because you are reliving what you feel bad about, but once you have let it out and its not bottled up anymore you will start to feel lmuch better.

usually not, once saying something aloud you often feel less pressured and weighed down by the issue that has been kept inside of you...

While talking about a traumatic event can be difficult, it can also let you accept what happened and help you decide how to move forward. It's a good idea not to get stuck in bad memories, but putting them out in a coherent order, especially to a receptive, trustworthy audience, can help you get over a bad event.
