I am trying to find the word for the act of turning oneself inside out, with respect more to showing one's feelings on the outside instead of supressing it.

The closest words I can come up with are explode, expound, expand, express. Extricate? Is there a word that starts with Ex....? I can't remember, it's probably a word I learnt in childhood but for the life of me I cannot remember.

Thank you!

    Word Hippo has synonyms, but the closest fits here are multi-word (bare one's soul // speak openly / frankly / freely // get it off one's chest ....// There's also being an extrovert for the stative sense. Commented Apr 3, 2021 at 11:58
  • Self-revelation, perhaps.

Expose seems to fit the meaning - you expose your innermost feelings.
