Firstly, stop thinking about what you're going to say or how the other person will react. If it must be said or is important, say it. This is what being open is. A disclaimer before the floodgates open is acceptable in most cases, but understand that if someone can't handle what you have inside you, then they can't handle you
. If something is hard to say, that's usually because it's one of those important things that should be said.
