To tell someone what has been bothering you, to relieve yourself of some burden, to confess something you feel guilty for.

Etymology:

  • Obviously your heart controls your emotions, fears, and feelings and it lies in the chest. So if you are troubled or worried about a secret, criticism  or anything which has been bothering you or making you upset,  you feel the burden of it on your heart so you finally let it know to someone and get it “off your chest” to finally relieve your heart of this load.
