Communicate with those you trust. There is an old saying: “Pain shared is halved; joy shared is doubled.” Discuss your problems and share your successes. If you try to hold in all your problems, they’ll slowly fester and eat away at you in the long run, leading to much bigger problems. When something great happens, don’t deprive the world of your fortune, share the great news. If you don’t feel close enough to unload on a friend or family member, seek out a professional or a knowledgeable and trustworthy person, like a clergy member. Everyone needs someone to talk to sometimes.
