“Sorry to unload on you like that,” he said

“I’m glad you did,” I said,

“So many times we go through life,

carrying burdens, situations

not knowing who we can share it with

but not quite able to bear the burdens ourselves.

We lose sleep, become stressed

because we feel all alone.

Yes, we talk to God and that is a great place to start,

but we still fear the judgement of others.

It’s not until we tell another human being

and they meet us with open hearts and minds

that we can begin to lay our burden down-

or, rather, finally have someone

to carry that burden along

til the carrying is done.”
