TOEFL Essay - A shared problem is a solved problem

Q. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A problem shared is a problem solved.

Obviously sometimes the more the merrier. We humans love to share our problems with others. We often hope that others can discuss our problems out loud so to expose the silliness of their tenors. Other times, we hold these problems within to be sacred and unalienable, as if the very existence of problems makes us adults. For now, I prefer to share. If we're going to share we should solve our problems then we can do it together.

Teams address problems differently than even the best therapist does alone. Problems touch down upon individuals, like a car hoisted onto four cinderblocks clearly shouts for mechanics. We together scrutinize the workings and failures of any issue. Just like having an observer constantly over your shoulder, effectively arranging problems among a group is a type of curatorial process. For example, I have problems my friends might not have had. They have problems I've managed to avoid. Together, we can sort these and spread the problematic nature around.

We love to share our problems. Many incorrectly think that problems make us human and adults indeed. However, this is not the first mistake that lands people with more problems. Landed arenas for problems divide a person from actually experiencing locales unaffected by troublesome issues. An area which is free from worry is a place where we adults freely unburden ourselves, even though we heap past issues on a friend group. Our friends' motions in accepting our problems are what distinguish friend levels; we can designate these by terming each level of worry a different color. The group comprehends that a threat level orange group problem ultimately attracts more serious and permanent attention than most lavender-colored problems.
