We all find ourselves in tough situations every now and then. Who is the first whom you approach or confide with in such situations.
For me i always go to my dad. He lets me know how to handle the situation. Sometimes i dont take his advice, but talking to him i feel comforted and better equipped to handle the pressure. The second person is my hubby, who always stands by me in the hour of need.
Well, that person depends on what kind of problem I am going through. If it is related to parenting doubts, without any doubt it is my Mother I turn to seek help. Besides being my mother, she is also a professional psychologist and counselor.
If I am struggling with minor problems related to technology like struggling with some feature on smartphone, it is my teenage daughter. If the technological or gadget issue needs an expert hand or advice, that is my tech savvy husband who comes to rescue. For issues related to my car and my career or finance, it is again him.
For cooking and house management issues, I turn to the best home maker I know, my husband's elder sister.
For other personal issues of family and relatives, I have a college time friend who is a good listener. His listening comforts me.
When I am feeling low and need pampering, I talk to my elder brother.
And when I feel too overwhelmed by complexities of life, I turn to my young innocent charmer daughter of 10 who has a very simple solution to all the complexities.
SO I have multiple sources to seek help when in trouble.
I have some closest family members and many friends to whom I can talk about anything that bothers me but at the very first shot I need to talk to three people in my life. My husband and my two elder sisters. Until I speak to the trio I never feel at ease.
