To get something off your chestHave you ever had something that bothered or worried you, that you couldn’t stop thinking about? Sometimes the best thing to do in that situation is to get it off your chest. In this episode, we’re talking about feelings. If you need to have an honest conversation with someone about how you feel, you could have a heart-to-heart. It’s always a good idea to open up!

Harp: Yes. So the first expression today is to get something off your chest.
Maura: Yes. To get something off your chest and this expression means to talk about something that’s been bothering you or worrying you. So if you get something off your chest, it means that you talk about something that’s been on your mind a lot.
Harp: Yeah. To get something off your chest you speak with another person, in order to feel better afterwards, because you’ve been worrying about something, something’s been bothering you.
