When we encounter heartbreak and trauma, often we respond by hiding it from others. We wish to protect our wounds instead of exposing them to other people. The trials we face, along with the ensuing heartbreaks, should not be kept to ourselves. When we share our pain, we receive comfort both from God and from our fellow believers. When we share our hurt, we can be vulnerable in a way that will allow healing to take place. When we enter into the suffering of one another, it also helps us to endure our own struggles. We are able to follow Jesus in and through our heartbreak because we are not alone.
