Five Minute Friday: Share

It's Five Minute Friday when I get to link up with other writers. We receive a one-word prompt and write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is: Share.


It can be hard to open up. After all, are people really interested in hearing my sob story?

At least, that's what I thought.

Keep a stiff upper lip and do something about your situation. Quit complaining.

But I discovered that when I am authentic and share from my heart, people tend to feel more comfortable sharing their story.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
My life turned upside down in 2010. I went from living the life of my dreams to losing all my material possessions. I wrote a blog post about it titled "Brokenness Can Lead to Blessing". I received more comments and support than any of the other blog posts I wrote. And I've been blogging since 2007! You can read about my story here.

Sharing has helped me heal and move on. I can identify with others who are going through difficulties. It helps when you understand what it feels like.


Blessings and love,
