The thing that upsets me most is the conflicting values that exist in our family. None of us agree with each other on so many issues that interacting is no longer looked forward to. This must be a common scene everywhere and sometimes I wonder what holds a family together?

Oh, yeah it's common situation to every family. I think that holds the family together is Love and respect for each other. When everyone in a family knows how to respect each other, there will be understanding, and when there is love it will wrapped up everything. That's what I believe based on my experienced.

Hey careguarden! There are alot of things that are going on in my life right now that I don't like! I hate that it is Winter and the weather is cold! I am having problems with my boyfriend and don't know if we are going to stay together much longer! I am having problems with my depression! Right now is just a very bad time for me in alot of ways. I am also having health problems too. So, in general I am just having trouble hanging in there!

Oh, wow! you seem to be in a place that's quite tough. We all gone through with that stage, well yeah, I hate winter as well, although in my place right now, there's no winter season, I'm glad! Don't you have any friends or family whom you can honestly talk to? I think you need them at this moment of your life. It's fine to ask for help, it doesn't make you less, it only makes you humble. I think your main problem is depression;winter, health and relationship problems always end up to depression. And the cure to depression lies in you. You can do something, (you know the worst thing you can do to any problem is just sit down and do nothing) fight your depression, and don't focus on the things that let you down. As our focus change our emotions and feelings will change as well. Just like when you're watching a movie, when you feel sad and you watch a comedy, you will somehow felt happy. You can do the same thing as well, do the things that makes you happy, that caught your interest or make other people happy. One of my friend who's into counseling said, that when you felt depressed, find someone who has bigger problem than yours and listen to that person and you'll feel better. You can try it for yourself! what do you think? Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

At the moment, my husband and I are roommates with another couple because we can't afford a decent house on our own. This is very uncomfortable, especially because they argue almost every night. They've even gone to the extent to throw things around. It's kind of scary, actually. There's not any privacy. You can't do what you want, when you want. If something breaks, it takes them forever to get it fixed, but still expect us to pay the exact amount for it on time or all hell breaks loose. I don't think it's fair to be forced to pay for something that doesn't even work! However, what can you do? We haven't been able to find another place yet, and we can't live on the street. Sometimes it is awesome; we have money left over to go out to eat or take little trips because we are sharing rent and utilities. Then, other times it is horrible because of the things mentioned above.

Oh, that could be real scary, I've seen people fighting and yeah throwing things to each other, it's like you're watching a movie, but in reality it seems like in any moment you'll become part of the fight and that scared me a lot. Yeah, you seem to have no choices at all, and indeed you have to pay. Well I think only best thing you can do is work hard so you can earn more money and you'll able to move to a better place. It takes a little bit time, but I'm sure you can make it. Pray to God and He will keep you away from harm and danger. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Oh, that's quite bad,since after tired days from work, we need something fresh and good to see, and it should be our place that will somehow take some of our stress. A cozy and beautiful surrounding could be great. Well, anyway that would be for a moment in your case, I'm sure things will change, and if it didn't happen, for sure you'll get used on it. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Right now the things I don't like in my life are MONEY and my lack of preparing for a time that I would not have money. I do like my life with all its ups and downs. I would not be living it I didn't have them. I accept where I am and because of it I am looking for ways to improve my situation.
