Sometimes, we find ourselves divulging too much of our thoughts and feelings to certain people, for reasons we try to justify – seeking advices, looking for reassurances or validations, wanting to be heard, or just simply we want to unload some stuff off our chests. Whatever the reason, sharing does make the load double or half. Mathematically it is something not possible… either sharing is a multiplier or a divider but it can never be both. That is why, you know, math cannot explain ALL things in life. So, I hope they cut down all the years in math that, as students, we took! Well, unless you can prove to me that if I share 1 with 2 I can get a result of 2 and sometimes 0.5 when sharing, mathematically, is dividing something for others. I’m not here to prove math is useless, I’m just entertaining myself with this idea that ha-ha, math does not have the answer! 😛
What I’m really trying to point out is, how wonderful and amazing sharing does to a person that it puzzles me why some people would still choose not to. Share your joys, they double. Share your sorrows, they decrease if not disappear. When you feel God loves you and you are overwhelmed with this love, share it. When you feel you are in a trial and you are overwhelmed as well, share it! That is the magical equation of sharing. (: Share the good stuff, we feel good. Share the bad stuff, the burden lightens.
If we’re not yet in the habit of sharing, start small. Start with a candy, share a thought that makes you happy, or share a concern you have. In my experience, what good vibes you receive afterwards.
PS. Don’t expect when you share. Just, share. And let God work on your heart and your situation. (: The real subject of sharing is you. The real benefactor when you share is yourself. So when you think about it, if you love yourself, you’ll share yourself more!
