Relating one's problems to someone

Q: It is mentioned in the Quran that:

Verily, I only complain of my grief and sorrow to Allah!

Does it mean that we should not tell people about our problems?

A: It is permissible if you feel that the person can bring about some relief to you.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
