We often carry our burdens alone. Maybe we don’t want others to know what we’re going through. Maybe we don’t want to burden anyone with our burdens. Whatever the reasons may be, we don’t distribute the weight of our burdens very well. As a result, many of us walk through life surrounded by family and friends, and yet there is a loneliness that prevails. Furthermore, the weight of carrying our burdens alone becomes an endeavor that leaves us weary and discouraged, with very little hope that anything will change. We need to distribute the weight of our burdens, because we cannot carry them alone. Indeed, we weren’t designed to.
