I agree with John, a plan for attack can definitely be helpful. I sort of resigned myself that starting the conversation, or the initial "diving in" is always going to be awkward -- you can only alleviate that part so much, but if you're having trouble talking about things, ask your therapist about ways they can help you feel safer.
