Letting Go That Which is Heavy
And even though we know that they are heavy, they remain things that we have such a tough time setting down. We know that if we just stopped and set them down, if we stopped and took the yoke from around our necks, then we would be able to move on in our lives into much better things.
Yet still we don't. There are all kinds of reasons and excuses for that, and each of us have a different one that seems ultra-important. And maybe they are.
You should set them down. We should set them down. Don't we all know that? But, I guess sometimes they're un-set-down-able... and if you can't set them down yet, the next best thing is to find someone who is willing to walk along with you, and help you carry that which weighs down your heart, until you can.
Maybe that's what life is about... helping each other carry what we can't on our own.
