i just stay inside my room and read a feel-good book like andrew matthews' being happy. there are times also when i go to a friend's house to let just let go of my emotions and problems. writing in a diary also helps.

I have two friends online that I trust totally and I do sometimes go to them when I have problems or just need someone to talk too.. They are very understand they listen and don't judge me.. I will ask what should I do and of course they give me there oppions on them rather it's good or bad.. I am not really a talker to other people that know me to well i mean family wise cause yes my family does judge like that is wrong never should do that blah, blah but than again sometimes they are understand and know what I am talking about.. You know though sometimes talking to a total stranger and getting there oppions on things can really help too.. It all depends on who and what the problem is..

I got the point you mean. yes our relatives are just concern of us and sometimes they don't realize that too much concern is just like they are stopping us, or they are just adding ro our misery. lol. We can hear all the don;ts instead of making us feel good the more we feel bad? I understand that. But they don;t mean to do that. they want to give their unsolicited advice hehehe... and they think that they are right.. without considering how we feel about it. Well, I tis always nice to have someone who can understand us and not making any comments when we confide our problems. thanks for sharing.

When I have problems I usually keep it to myself. I always end up in a silent room - - it can be my room, park or inside the church. I want to understand my problem by having more time to listen to my inner self. I seldom share it with friends or any member of my family because I always believe that no one can help me except myself. I also end up crying with problems I do not understand. For me crying is not a sign of weakness but it is a sign that I am human, I am not perfect. I have my own battle in life and crying makes me realize that after a hard cry, there is a wonderful life ahead. Humility is needed when we have problems so that we will able to find the right solution.
