Yeah we all know that we hate problems and break our heads finding a solution to it.The question is,how do you solve your problems? Do you think to yourself about it and come to a conclusion or do you seek expert advice like asking your parents or even other elders or even your friends. I'm totally autonomous when it comes to taking decisions and solving problems.I think to myself about the whole thing and come to a conclusion and don't usually tell others of whats going on.I'd probably tell them after its over.So what about you,how do you solve your problems?

It really depends on the problem -- and then it depends on the circumstances. *laughs* It's how my life goes, EVERYTHING always depends on the circumstances. Mostly I rely on myself only, consulting friends when I'm at wit's end..unable to break through whatever's keeping me from the answers to the problem. Friends then, often come through..coming up with the solution, or else shouldering some of the responsibility, helping me with it. Family and strangers are always, always, ALWAYS a last resort for me. I dunno, maybe it's just something leftover from my surviving days. When life was one problem to the next, where trusting someone was nearly fatal *amused* or maybe it's just my solitary thing, I've always been one of those "I can take care of myself" girls.

I always have problems, I also don't see anyone who doesn't.. I easily break down, honestly, but after some time I really try to think hard on this problem and try to find a solution that will make it ok. I usually think hard on things and I don't want to give up unless I know it's ok now.. I also shared my problems to people who I can trust and seek advices from other people because I know their opinion counts and can help me in anyway. There are just some times that I need to share it just to let it all out but I really do try to hide it so that I couldn't affect anyone with this burden I'm having..

Well Im alot like you and keep everything to myself and try to figure it out on my own. I hate asking for advic it makes me feel stupid but when I have gotten in over my head and start getting really frusterated I have no choice but to ask for adviced if Im at my ends wit. I always find someone else's opinion always gives me fresh idea's anyways.

i didnt talk about my problems often.when i met a problem,the first thing i do is to search the internet,looking if there is somebody else having the same question and having solved it.if i cant find any results,then i will go to ask my schoolmates for advice,they will figure out a way for me,but i just think that i cant always resort to them.so i will do my best to solve it myself,if i cant,i ask for help.

Problems come in different shapes and sizes! Small problems are handled intuitively and personally. But there are problems that may be a bit complex, for example a deep seated marrital problem could best be solved with the help of Marrital Counsellor, Church Pastor, or family members. yes there are problems you can handle but not all kinds of problem!
