Are you carrying emotional baggage?

Dumping that baggage is the work of support groups and sometimes best friends, social workers and the medical community, mental health professionals and priests — all there to help lighten your load.

Lightening your load makes everything better. You will become more present to the people you love, more aware of the good in your days, rediscover happiness and lead a more balanced life.
