"During one's life there will be good times and bad to experience and internalise. It is crucially important that we learn to share both our good days and bad days with others whom we love and respect and do not try to ride them out alone in our own little corner of isolation.
There is no reasoning to be found in putting one's head down and braving it out alone when there are countless others around who are prepared to offer their sound advice, good solicitations, love and support.
The great philantropist Andrew Carnegie knew that keeping his vast wealth to himself and taking it to his grave with him was the most unproductive thing he or any other person could do. He discovered that it was better to give it all away to the more needy in his life time rather than keep it locked up like an abandoned fish out of water which is simply allowed to stink and rot away.
Sharing oneself in every way with those who care for and love you is no different to the truth that Andrew Caregie and others discovered. Sharing your love, fear, pleasure, pain and happiness will stop you rotting away and decomposing in your ever-growing mound of isolation. A good way to begin this process is by learning to tell others truthfully and considerately how you feel about this, that, them, the situation you are part of and self. Believe me, it will make you a freer spirit and transorm your life into one of greater happiness and more positive expectations." William Forde: December 8th, 2013.
