People who keep things for themselves without sharing with their friends or loved ones
carry a considerable and unnecessary burden. Share your problems and concern with others.
Develop a support system of relatives, colleagues or friends to talk to when you are upset
or worried. When you are frustrated write it down. After you have vent the frustration,
destroy the writing so that it is forgotten. Rereading the journal will reawaken the
frustration and anger. So, do not keep it.
Seek social support. Studies have shown that close, positive relationships with others
facilitate good health and morale. One reason for this is that support from family and
friends serves as a buffer to cushion the impact of stressful events. Talking out problems
and expressing tensions can be incredibly helpful. If things really get bad, seek help
from a therapist, counselor, or clergyman.
