It’s the ones that say they don’t need help, that need it the most.

    Sooooooo true!!! And we know that we need help…we just think relying is burdening. I do it all the time. 24/7 with a baby and only your husband to talk and sometimes even he is not there. We need help…we just don’t know how to ask or whom to seek it from…

      So glad this one felt right to you. Acknowledging that it’s needed is the biggest thing, I’m so good at pretending ? then usually I bring it up with V or a mentor or a counsellor and go from there ?

    I totally agree, I know I need help, I am actually in a need of it.. But I dont know how to help myself, Trying to get the answers through meditation but still not going my way…
    probably not giving enough time to meditation…
    I do not know try to get the answers by being silent, but I wanna pour my heart out… I wanna take it out, it feels so heavy by keeping it inside and my soul gets tired by keeping stuff inside and by talking to your husband – you both need to be at the same level to understand what you wanna talk about…
    Anyways probably sometimes I feel, this talking job is of a lady/woman’s cup of tea..
    I feel good after reading your posts..

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers

      Hi Shweta, I definitely know how you feel about the meditation, I had a time when I thought it could solve things, but I needed more than that.
      I don’t want to preach, or tell you what will work exactly for you – here are simply some things that worked for me 🙂 I hope something from this might strike a chord with you.
      > Getting on the same level with V took time, sometimes he can be abrupt or say things very “matter of factly” and it used to upset me, now I can hear the intention behind his words. This has taken quite some time and trust in myself as well.
      > Please, don’t keep it inside. Ask around for a great counsellor. Usually when thoughts are swimming inside our minds, they get bigger and bigger and sometimes darker and moodier. The faster we get them out of our system and resolve an issue, the lighter we feel.
      > I used to talk to friends or family about my problems. From experience, I often find that they can sway me a certain way – that could lead to me being angrier or more submissive. Sooner or later, something will release and I’ll probably explode 🙂 So now, I just talk to a counsellor. She’s neutral, doesn’t speak against V, just works to understand my core issue.

      I hope things get better, much better 🙂 I know how it feels when the brain is full of mush. Sometimes I just go to work and do meetings to keep my mind off things. Even this helps as a starter 🙂

      Much love and hope. xx K
