Problems & Solutions

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers


A recent incident has set me thinking. This is just a Post about my random thoughts...

If there’s any problem in our personal life that we are unable to solve on our own, then what should be our course of action? 

Should we share it with close people or should we cover it up so that no one knows?

If we share it with someone/some people, then we are ‘washing dirty linen in public’. Anything that is not 'private', is 'public'. 

We risk being judged. 

Also, our secret may find its way to others that we wouldn’t like or want. 
How many people can actually keep a secret?
A secret is something that everyone tells everyone not to tell anyone!’

Then, I saw this image in Twitter:

What if we don’t reach a mutually agreeable consensus with our partner?

What if kiss & make up just doesn’t work?

Is the solution to keep the faith, hoping things will work out?

Or is walking away the solution?

Some people walk away, not only from their partner’s life, but from Earth itself…
Those who are strong enough not to end their lives, end up living with past memories though trying for a hopeful future.

Wish there were solutions for every kind of problems.
And medicines for every illness.

Relationships are very delicate...
I guess the best solution is- mutual time, patience, trust, understanding, hope, support, respect…lots of love.

May God give everyone enough strength to tide over every problem & recognize the solutions.

Here’s wishing more solutions & zero problems in everyone’s lives.

    1. Thanks Bushra.
      That's a good way to approach. First, try on our own and then take expert help :) Should help to solve the problem.

      We need to be strong enough to keep & handle issues on our own. Caution that we have to check & not let it go out of control...

  4. I think sharing it with a sibling or a close friend works wonders. But more than that if we are able to put our egos away and delve into the problem, that will bring a change in perspective.
    Many a times when we put ourself in place of the other person and think as to why he/she must have done what he/she did, we find it easier to forgive and forget.

    1. Ego is a very important word, Preethi.
      Also, putting ourselves in the other person's shoes.
      Sane advice. Thanks :)

  5. Commendable post Anita. It always reminds me of the quote "If there's any problem, there's always a solution and if you don't find a solution then you are part of the problem". However, knowing and practicing is plays a vital role than expecting some miracle to happen to mend a relationship. Just like players know all the tips and tricks of a game and play well, partners too should be aware of all the tricks and tips to mend relationships than giving up hope or feeling helpless.

      Yes, very true. We have to put in sincere effort for solutions. If there were no problems, we would never enjoy the solutions :)

  7. People will never know the whole story and give you advice that might not suit your situation. So, try to resolve issues yourself. Read more, absorb more, learn from people around you - that's my mantra.

    1. That's absolutely right, Nisha. People don't know our story as well as we do.
      Your mantra of self-help is cool. We have to be open to learn and grow.

  8. Totally agree with the image above. Like they say,

    "Don’t tell your problems to people: eighty percent don’t care, and the other twenty percent are glad you have them."

    Brilliant take on this age old tamasha! :)

  9. Sometimes when we feel certain things cannot be shared with anyone, we just have to pray to God to give us the strength to face such situations.

    1. True Ashwini. There is great power in prayer.
      Many of us believe that God will take care of our problems. But, also true is the fact that 'God helps those who help themselves.' May we all have the strength to help ourselves solve problems.

  12. Its always true with any relationship. Its the trust between the two which keeps you going. But sharing things with ur close friends will help one take it positively and not battle it inside you to the extent of depression!!

    1. Welcome to my Blog, Dipti!
      Thanks for sharing your views. Agree with you that trust & close friends make it easy. But, hope they are close enough not to spill the beans. Depression is a horrid thing that can culminate in suicide.
      May we all have great friends and a great life! :)

  13. Thoughtful Post...!!!
    I really don't mind my loved one interfere with my problems.
    Because problems can cause anxiety, many people will try to avoid, ignore, or procrastinate when dealing with difficult issues in their lives.

  20. Good post. However, sometimes when I am faced with a really bad problem, I do discuss it with my friends. If I am utterly frustrated, and if all else fails - I write! That helps me big time!

  23. Valuable thoughts Anita. Personally I believe when you say your problems open, it worsens the situation more and the people to whom you share your problems will start judging you unless they are close ones. But that does not mean, you got sulk inside. Share them only if you need after thinking twice with confidential ones who will help you out.

  25. If there is problem in your personal life and unable to solve it on your own and cannot share with anyone in that situation you should take help of an expert who has expert to solve all your life`s problem. Human`s life is full of problems and they want solution for it but it can be done by an astrologer who has knowledge about astrology , palmistry , numerology etc.

  26. Our country is full of faith, love, tradition, respect and religions. Here, before starting of a good work, worship of God is the first task. Without doing it, no work can move in a positive way. People are really very afraid of their work's result. They just want the technology through which they can see their future aspects. But unfortunately, no such facility is still developed by our science or by our practical world. Astrology is the root of such facility, as it is a power to achieve your desires or your ambitions. We got success in serving these facilities very smoothly, under the guidance of Pandit Ajay Ji. http://www.astrologermaster.com

  27. Hmm...your random thoughts are quite thought provoking actually! :) True that relationships are delicate matters that need constant nurturing and they are also the source of various problems in our life... ;) . A healthy relationship can be an inspiration to live. But sometimes ending a relationship is the solution. And sometimes not finding a proper solution brings an end to a relationship. Things are so complicated! :)
