I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Do you expect other people to carry your load?

on September 18, 2015

We all have baggage.  Nobody has gone through life without picking up some problems and many people carry these with them throughout life.   Then when we form a relationship, we combine our baggage and the problems grow.

Many times we expect other people to carry our load.  If we have been treated badly in the past, we carry these hurts with us and we unload our pain on the people around us.   We expect them to solve our problems and bring us happiness and when they can’t follow through, we blame them for our problems.

It is unfair when we try to burden other people with our past hurts.  We have to take responsibility for our own actions and try to deal with these problems so they don’t affect our relationships.  Instead of expecting other people to carry our load, we should be trying to lighten theirs by being upbeat and positive about life.   We are responsible for our own happiness and we can become the bright light in someone else’s life.
