We all have problems in life, and sometimes there is this special someone whom we always turn to, to share our problems and heartaches in life. with me, i usually tell it to my family if it's family related problems then i turn to my best friend cause she always understands, helps and supports me. It's great to have somebody we can trust and turn to when we have problems. how about you? tell us who do you turn to when you have problems? whether it's matter of the heart, family, work-related or jst any problems you have.

I always turn to my family for getting an advice when I am in a problem.. I don't understand, but they seem to have a solution for all my problems, and this makes me go to them everytime, there is something wrong about to happen or is happening in my life... They have been really supportive to me in my entire life... I love them a lot...

i would tell my best friend,she would help me to deal with those difficult issues,and if this is our two fail,we will be asking parents to provide us with favorable views.After all,their experience more rich than we thought would issue a more comprehensive and more mature.

Whenever I'm having problems in my life, I will run to my best friend every time. And she does the same with me. She has always been there for me, and she always knows what to say to calm me down and get my thoughts headed in the right direction. I can also turn to my husband too, depending on what problems I'm dealing with. He's good at coming up with solutions too.

When I have problems, I talk to my family and my good friends. They are always there to help me and support. I am so happy that my problems are usually well solved with their help. Two heads are always better than one. Family and friends are always the important source where help comes from. I appreciate them for their help and support as always.

Well, I always pray about it, so I have to say He would be the first one I would turn to. It is a habit now, when something happens, I just start praying. I also like to talk things over with my mom. She's pretty open minded, and we are like best friends sometimes. I can count on her giving me good, sound advice.

i also turn to God when i have problems, i talk to him through prayers and that's how i tell Him my problems cause i know he always understands and he's always there for me and all of us. He knows everything and maybe He's just testing us if we have strong faith in HIM. :) thanks for sharing Mayan_012285. God bless!

hi claire, You are so right!! It is so important to have someone that you can trust and tell all to. It is such a relief when you can get all this stuff off your chest. This confidante can be just about anyone that you are really close to. They can be very supportive in many ways. They can listen to you, offer suggestions, bring up related topics or events, to help you deal with whatever you are going through. My confidante is my very best friend. We do not always agree on everything, and that is why I think it works so well for us. We look at things from at least two sides and come up with something that is a little more tolerable. Thus, making life a little easier by having relieved the pressure of dealing with an unpleasant issue. Happy posting..

Whenever I have a problem I go to my sister, Jodi or my mom. Usually, all I have to do is hear their voice and I feel better. They let me talk and figure out my own problems. My sister and my mom are my best friends. I am there for their problems, also.

When I have som problems the first person is my two friends, who I would talk to.Ther would always find a time for me and support me, so I know I can trust them.If it is some family problems I usually talk to my brother, becuase he knows most the time, what is going on.

First I turn to my husband for he's my soul mate through and through however though, if HE'S my problem then I'll talk to a friend of mine online or my mom if we're on good speaking terms. Other than that, I'll keep it to myself and fume over it a while till he gives in. LOL

That depends upon what the problem is. I had problems which I've confided to my friends. I've had some which I've confided to my mom only, some have been confided to my husband or sister only. There are some which I tell to the whole world even to my online friends :)

Whenever I am feeling bad or having problems, I watch the most awesome movie ever produced, Napolean Dynamite. Ever time I think that I just can't make it through another day, I simply have to watch this movie, and I AM INSPIRED!! Who could not be inspired after watching something such as this? No one, that's who. Before 2004, I was constantly seeking therapy. But God had a plan for me, and God provided this film for the world, that we would know true happiness. Before I watch Napolean Dynamite, I always say a prayer of thanksgiving to God for not forgetting me. For hearing my cries of despair, and for remembering me and providing me with TRUE INSPIRATION!! I guess that what I'm saying is that when I have problems, I turn to God and Napolean Dynamite. These guys help get me through the tough times.

i have different people that i refer to for different kinds of problems... most of the time i share my problems with friends - but then again, different problems - different friend. i do have one very, very close friend from high school - one who also i furthered studies with, one who also knows my husband back when we were still dating... she shares most of my problems, but there are some things i do not confide in her - not because i dont trust her... but because some things that i just do not wish to bother her with.
