Share the Weight

Sometimes,
Just letting it all out on the table and talking through things with a friend or loved is life’s best medicine.

We often feel alone in our experiences (of pain, failure, remorse etc.) but loneliness evaporates as soon as we speak out our experiences. The act of speaking to someone who cares and is listening lightens the load of each person involved. To love and be loved. To care and be cared for.

When you're feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, it's time to share with others. No one person is made to carry that much weight. You need a team. If you don't have one it's time to make one.

Our experiences are touching stones of connecting and inspiring others.

Perhaps the worst things that happen to you and how you got through can be shining beacons of hope for those going through similar things.

Perhaps we can pull ourselves off the cliffs of our darkest moments by recognizing that how we handle the problems can have a positive influence for others, and having a positive impact is the reason why we have to keep persevering through the dips.

Be A Positive Influence You Wish You Had Yourself.

You can be an example of negative change or positive change to everyone in your life. Which will you choose?


Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
