Relieving the Burden...
It’s been said that if everyone had the opportunity to set down our hobo bag of troubles into a mutual pile, and then were invited to choose any one from the pile – we would instinctively choose our own; because that’s what we are most familiar with.
To relieve the burden of troubles it feels important to turn our attention outward rather than inward. Dwelling on what’s not right won’t make things better – sometimes diverting our attention to something or someone other than ourselves makes it easier to put things in perspective.
If someone you see looks sad, dejected or is upset, the simple act of giving a smile, however small, will make you both feel better.
