Some things are awkward to bring up but that doesn’t mean that you should avoid them.
Acknowledge that it will be awkward and that maybe you’ll feel a little uncomfortable and then just tackle it head on.
You might find out that it’s not as awkward as you’d anticipated. But if it is awkward, that’s okay too. Some things aren’t so easy to talk about. However, they tend to get a little easier the more you talk about them.
