Where Can I Turn?
When faced with a problem or a challenge or a threat, everyone sooner or later asks themselves, “Where can I turn?” Sometimes life can be a maze and hand a person more than he or she can handle. Perhaps it’s a problem with an important but difficult relationship, or maybe it is one of those deeply personal agonies-depression, anxiety, grief, or fear.
As painful as our problems often are, we are reluctant to seek help because we don’t want to “go public” with our troubles by seeking help through the usual channels. So we try to tough it out on our own because we don’t know where to turn.
Often-times we don’t really know if what is bothering us is normal, whether we’re right or wrong in a relationship, or if we might be ill. Sometimes we need answers to let us know if what we believe to be true is true. Sometimes all we need is for a caring someone to look at us from a different perspective and tell us what they see.
