Do you find yourself always concealing how you actually are when others ask because you’ve given up on being supported or understood?
It is no secret that our times are hard on those who display anything less than excitement about their lives. A true dictatorship of happiness.
But while we should ineed make an effort to protect ourselves and not throw our pearls to the pigs, it is also important to be honest about our struggles and not paint our lives with amazing colors when there’s mostly darkness.
Just be careful to share only with people who you already know have a deep sensitivity and a genuine interest in supporting your well being.
And if you find yourself without anyone to open up with, remember that God is there for you. And if you surrender and deposit your full confidence in him, he will certainly lead you to find others that will be able to support you at difficult times.
Supporting others who are struggling edifies and strengthens us even when we feel like we’re the ones in need of support. This is part of the many wonders of our existence.
So the question isn’t just for you, but also for others around you.
