Who do you turn to when you need someone to talk?

Just had a good chat with my brother today. It feels good to talk to someone you can open up your problems and anxiety and gain some encouraging words in return. It somehow lessen the burden that I have in my life....

I can count on a couple people but one most I depend on to truly listen to me with absolutely no conditions is my boyfriend. I have been truly blessed with him because I can pretty much tell him how I feel and or anticipate in doing and he to date for six years is truly supportive and does not have a judgmental bone in him. I did not feel this in the very beginning and not because he was not this way but because of lack of trust with people in the past. It was one day that I opened up to him early on and find that he by far is the best listener I could ever have. There are days he cannot come up with perhaps the answers I need but the great part is that is is always willing to listen and offers his humble advice. This to me is priceless and a rarity that I never had prior to meeting him.

I had one too before, but she works in other country right now and we seldom communicate with each other. Too busy I guess, but still we chat when we have available time.

Its good to know that you have your mom around. We lost ours when we're young. That's why we only have each other together with my sister to lean on..

I have some friends to trust. Maybe they cannot solve my problems, but I can try to explain what hurts me. There are some things from the past nobody can help, but that is life. It is because of my sister's life. Penetrating into her problems could mean getting too emotional. Time passes and there is still hope everything will be better.

Time to time I talk to my close friends. Some are from my college days, some are recent, some are business colleagues. Yes, it is very encouraging to communicate with close friends. A friend in need, is a friend indeed ! They would also talk to me on various things when they need to.

Whenever I have problems or just need a talk, I go to my sister. She is the sweetest, though we disagree a lot. And I do tell my problems to my best friends too. They are also the sweetest persons on earth. I would be so lost without all of them.

I have a person that I open up to and he kicks me in the shin (so to speak) so I'll wake up and smell the coffee and realize what I'm doing is wrong or the way I feel will pass. It's really good to have him there to do that for me, even if sometimes it can be a little insulting. I think everyone should have that type of person in their life.
