You don’t have to face difficulties alone. No matter how small or large a challenge you have, it definitely helps to seek help. Getting a fresh perspective can give you more options and will make you feel better that you’re not alone.
I’ve been feeling anxious about my mother’s upcoming 90th birthday. You would think that I shouldn’t feel this way because it’s a joyous and momentous occasion. You would be right! My feelings stem from past dealings with my sisters, regarding making arrangements for setting up the details for holidays and celebrations. We never agree and there’s hard feelings! Can anyone relate to my dilemma?
My mother’s birthday is on July 10th and I’m already fretting about what I’m going to do. Rather than waiting for the last-minute, I’ve enlisted the help of my friends on Facebook, Twitter, and this blog.
I got some very good ideas about possible options. I immediately felt better and am now able to make better choices and not get myself crazy in the process. I’m going to talk to my mother and my sisters and come up with a solution that we’re all going to be happy with. Again, this is not an easy feat!
I want to thank everyone who gave me suggestions! This is an example of not having to come up with solutions to problems by yourself. I’ll keep you posted on how things turn out.
