i just want your opinions, what do you do when you encounter problems, do you ussually keep it to yourself and try to solve it alone or do you share it with your friends and ask for their opinions or help?

it depends on the situation, if its too personal i won't share it with anyone and ill just try to solve it on my own, but if its not that sensitive, i would definitely ask my friends about it.

i am an extrovert person and i am always an open book to friends as what they say, so i guess i will tell them my problems and seek for their opinion.

For me, it really depends on the situation. For the most part, I'm a pretty private person. I like keeping things to myself. I'll only reveal information about problems to people that I really feel that I can trust. And it really takes a lot to pull things out of me, especially the more personal issues that I struggle with. Even then, I'll only disclose information to certain people.

That is exactly what's on my mind highflyingxangel. To add to that, it helps when you just pray and believe that these problems or hardships like all things, will pass. Or, one way that I do is go to a chatroom and use a handle that I use for anonymous purpose. There I get to talk to a "new friend" and I will just tell everything. It feels good after. :D

It depends. If it is relatinship problems, I would not get my peers involved. That would just blow up in my face later when things were better. If it were something else, not so personal, then maybe I would ask for opinions. I don't like to involve anyone in my personal problems, because then, they see it as something they always need to ask you about and it just goes beyond the point of what I think is their business. I found that out when I became a young mother. I wa 22 when I had my daughter, and because I asked for advice from my mother in law, she always treated me as if I didn't know what I was doing, and like I wasn't a good mother. She ended up trying to use it against me later. So asking for help or for any advice wasn't in my best interest that time and it taught me that I shouldn't involve people I am close to. I would rather consult a counselor, than to involve close people.
