Where do you go to for advice?

February 5, 2011 9:37am CST
I used to go to my Mom for advice on problems I could not solve on my own but unfortunately she died suddenly in her sleep one night in September 2008. Now I have nobody I trust enough to discuss personal problems with. I suppose I will just have to learn to cope myself. Who do you go to with your unsolvable problems?

Yeah, moms are always the best person to seek advice. Until now, even when I'm all grown up, I still go to her sometimes not only to ask for her opinion but also to be my sounding board. She has always been a good listener. I'm sure your mom was also. But try to open up with your other close friends. It's really hard to trust people but it is also unhealthy to cope with problems by yourself.

I have no friends here where I live now because there is a language barrier which makes communication almost impossible:) In my case i will just have to learn to cope alone.

I know what it like feeling like there is no one to go to for advice. My mom used to be the main person I used to seek for advice after a close friend of mine moved away. My mom has been gone since September 2007, and there are many times I have wished I could talk to her and share with her things going on and seek advice. Usually for me, it is trying to find a person I can seek some advice from in whom I can trust and know it will be for the best as well. The last yr. or two, I think I might have found a little of it from a woman I attend Church with in knowing I can share things with. I know when I go to her asking for guidance and Prayer about certain things she will pray and believe with me that God will move on my situation and know in time everything will be OK.

Yes. Moms do come in handy. I sure do miss mine as well. How about changing the names and making a discussion on mylot? There are lots of good people who will give you sound advice. Further no one gets angry if you don't take that advice. Of course, people on mylot can do no more than give you a cyber hug. It will never be as good as a hug from Mom.

So very sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I never had my biological mother while growing up so I really did not have someone I could easily turn and entrust. Do you have any Aunts, and or sister's that perhaps you can entrust. Sometimes even a female good friend (girl), would also be very helpful. Best of luck to you.
