I kept a fair share of things to myself, trying to solve problems in my own way. Maybe I felt that sharing on my problems is a sign of weakness and that weakness I can overcome. It came to me that these little problems I have might be solved much quicker had I just shared with others.
The mere act of sharing requires verbalization of the problem. I find myself forced to frame the problem in a manner that can be easily digested by the listener. There’re times that already solves half the problem. Then the listener will probe the issue at stake and this further constraints the boundaries of the problem and that might just lead me to discover the primary sources of the issues.
Well two minds can work better than one. It doesn’t hurt to share and the best part is no one really judges me as much as I judge myself. So share.
