Promise of a new Day

Sharing a burdened heart with another who has the wisdom, strength, and knowledge to carry it, frees us from its weight long enough to focus on solutions. —Liane Cordes—

Our obsession with a problem, keeps it a problem, any incessant problem, keeps it a problem. Our focus on it destroys the balanced perspective that is necessary for a solution to become apparent. Sharing a problem’s details with an interested friend clarifies the muddle. It also doubles the chances that a solution will emerge.
Holding onto problems, like keeping secrets, keeps us stuck. Our emotional health is proportionate to the freedom with which we willingly share ourselves with the people close to us. Sharing our joys doubles them. Sharing our burdens diminishes them. But more than that, it promises the discovery of their solutions.
Today I will share a problem, perhaps my own or someone else’s. A solution will be apparent, nevertheless.
