    Always remember: BARE is NAKED! Imagine yourself caught naked and let yourself feel embarrassed by it. You'll never forget the difference again. You can 'bare' your soul but it just means that you are stripping something away = naked!

    A bear is an animal but bear also means to carry a load, physical or emotional. 'His wife has just died but he bears it well' And incidentally, her brothers 'bore' her coffin. They were also grieving but they 'bore it well' Bear it out = stand fast and see it through.
