"the conversation lightened me up a bit"
"she lightened the load on the tired donkey"
"after a glass of wine, he lightened up a bit"
"The paint will brighten the room"
"The room lightened up"
"relieve the pressure and the stress"
"lighten the burden of caring for her elderly parents"
This..leaves the audience's mind..not loaded with pity and fear but lightened of them.
