Such a small statement, but it covers a multitude of scenarios.
No doubt we have all experienced personal conflict regarding relationships, concerns for our health, money matters, our kids, work etc. Many of us are lucky in having someone we can confide in, one who will help put things into perspective. They say a problem shared is a problem halved, but then it does depend on who you share it with.
Sometimes though whatever it is is SO personal, we can’t discuss it with our partners, or even our doctors.
Why is that I wonder? Is it the way we’ve been brought up? How we see ourselves compared with others? Insecurity?
When it comes to health however, embarrassment shouldn’t be an issue.
We all have personal preferences too (I prefer dogs to cats, but still like cats), food choices, the car we drive, how we spend our time and with whom, our home furnishings. It’s what makes us individuals. If we were all the same, just think how boring life would be. Mind you, that could be a plus…….. no-one could be singled out for being different!
Hubby and I had a very personal wedding. We invited the Mums and Dads, plus three witnesses. It was our day, and we wanted no pomp and ceremony. It was a good day, just the way we wanted it.
