“There is no greater burden than bearing an untold story inside you.”
I have seen and, to an extent, felt for myself what can happen to you when there is something that you need to share with someone but you don’t. It can eat you up, stress you out and grate on you. There’s a reason that people say a problem shared is a problem halved. And whether you talk to a friend, your family or a stranger, it will help. And even if you are the person on the other side, doing the listening, it will help too. I hope my friend finds the help they need.
