KEEPING STRUGGLES TO YOURSELF eats away at your spirit. It is amazing what a change in feelings happen when you dare to share your struggles with a spouse, a loved one, or a special friend. Pouring out your soul, being able to say to someone, “I trust and love you enough to share my problems with you,” is a liberating experience. You may be surprised by their response. Loving relationships will make you feel accepted and supported.
