    I agree that the sentence is fine. The expression "to give someone a wide berth" basically means to steer clear of them; to stay out of their way or to keep away from them for some reason.

    So, the sentence "People often give me a wide berth because I express my feelings too openly" might be rephrased as:

    "People tend to stay out of my way or try not to engage me too much because they know I won't hesitate to express my feelings, and they probably don't feel like listening to me bitch at them or go on and on about how I feel about something."

    Something like that.
