Traveling through different places with different nationalities I observe the same pattern in people:
Almost everyone I come into contact with carries a facade of well-being, but in reality there is a burden of fear of some kind underneath the surface, or an unresolved issue.
It spills out almost involuntary- sometimes in tears, sometimes “casually” or indirectly. For some it has become the status quo to carry stress and concerns.
Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 to bring our burdens to Him and He will give us rest. This is the entry point to the abundant life in Christ where “His yoke is easy, His burden is light.” It is simply to live trustingly like a little child, doing the will of the Father, resting in His faithfulness.
