I am reminded that when I say, "My life is a cross," I might merely be whining. If so, then maybe my life is not as much of a cross for me as it is for others who have to put up with my complaints about my small world. Life can have its crosses for many people and for all of us at one time or another. Not wearing our cross on our sleeve, not advertising our miseries, might be our way of gifting the world around us. And it might even lighten our cross to know that we are not burdening others with our troubles at this moment. Honesty with close friends or spiritual guides can be OK, but we can wear out a lot of friendships with our self-focused list of troubles.
