Something is troubling you, you need help, You need to talk things over with the person you trust the most in this world, and the person you feel will understand you the most Who would it be? Your husband/wife parent, or other family member, best friend? Who would it be and why?

I don't know. I kind of talk to different people about different subjects. My sister is probably the one I turn to the most especially when its a family related problem. For many years it was my former roommate, but she's got some issues that have caused her to be come less supportive. I guess for what I used to turn to her for, I turn to the current roommate, but mostly I keep them to myself. I love my mother dearly, but I never felt I could confind in her - I don't know why, honestly, its a hard way to grow up.

I would talk to both my husband and my best friend. Depending on what the issue was about I might just talk to my husband.

It is not very often that I will turn to someone as I am the type to keep things inside me But there are 3 People I would turn to My Boyfriend who is always there and understands me and manages to get me through things and my 2 Children who also come to me when they are bothered about something or need help

i had this bestfriend of mine. i trust him that much that i must admit he'll be the first to know if i'm in deep trouble. i've been a bad boy, and even if my parents were here i still don't feel that i should share them my problems - though ideally that should be the case.

I usually share my problems with my B and God.. They are the ones that I run to, to seek guidance and help because I know they would understand me.. I don't go to my parents that much because I don't want them to see me weak and they might think that I'm not strong and independent enough to face my problems.. The 2 important beings in my life as I've mentioned are the ones I know I can trust my problems with, I know things might not go my way but at least I've let it all out of me so that I can think clearly again with less worries..

It would be my husband. We tell each other everything and we talk about everything. I try to get him to open up more but that is kinda hard. It's also harder because he is now working nights and I work days so I don't get to talk to him very much anymore. That's hard because he is the only one that I really feel comfortable telling certain stuff too. And he doesn't get disgusted or mad about anything that we talk about. He is just so easy to talk to. I hope we never lose that.

For me, it would be my friends. I am not the type that shares my problems to my parents. I would rather be open to my friends for them to help me. I am very open to them but I don't know why I hate it when my parents get to know it. I don't have any problems with my parents but I'm just afraid that they know it.

My husband never seems to understand anything about me and my problems.. I used to turn to my mother about everything but she has changed these last 2 years and so I cnnot go to her anymore. I have no best friends or anyone really close that really knows me or understands me. And I don't tell my family I have tried and they just make smart as$ rude remarks and say join the crowd of people who have problems or complain they have worse ones or tell me that is nothing. So who do I talk to? Sometimes I will talk to a cousin who helps me sometimes but I don't like to burden her to much because she ahs a bunch of problems herself..So who do I truly talk to all the time when I hve problems? Nobody really. And that in it self is a problem. Cuases all kinds of emotional build up and problems.

In times when I was deeply troubled, I usually kept everything inside. I can share a few details with my best friend. I've known my best friend sine we're 7 years old. We practically grew up together and knew each other's families. We have been through a lot of good and bad times. Lately, I became more isolated with all my problems. I don't want to burden my friend when she was also having some problems of her own.

My sister, as she's the one person I can go to with 'almost' anything. We're like best friends, and she's not only a 'listening ear,' but she'll always go above and beyond for me, and come to my aid, in practical ways, as well as others. She's helped me so much in the raising of my daughter too, and there's no one for me like her. My daughter-in-law is also good to talk to, and can be of great help, when I need to discuss spiritual things, and we're able to pray for one another.

It would be my friend Russell who I've known for more than 10 years. People are aways mistaking us for a couple but we're just really good friends. Anyway, whenever something is going on, I talk to him even though we don't always agree. The thing is, he gives me another view - and quite often - a completely different one than mine. Sometimes I can be so caught up in how complicated things can be, I forget that the simplist thing might be the root of what's going on. *hugs*
