I seem to have a good way with friends, colleagues, family and people i know by giving them advice and ideas on life and family etc. I realise lately that i have problems too sometimes but i quite often struggle dealing with things or finding an answer to something. I have to realise soon or a later that i need to eat my own words and take my own advice

  • I’m the same. Great at giving good advice but not good at solving my own problems. Ah well at least helping others solve theirs I’m taking my mind off mine


  • I think we all do this at times


  • I’m exactly the same – I find that my friends rely on me to ‘have the answers’, or at least the ‘best advice’, but they think I would be all under control when it comes to handling problems of my own :/ A big part of solving any issue is TALKING about it – even if the person you speak to has no answers, it’s the ‘getting it out in the open and off your chest’ that is the best start. I hope you find the balance soon X


  • We do have to listen to ourselves and take care of ourselves.


  • You are absolutely right you have to listen to yourself!


  • I understand what you mean. Sometimes we give advice to other people and don’t realize we should follow it ourselves.

    • We always need to take stock and look at ourselves too!


  • Listen to your gut and do what you know is right for you and your family. Be gentle with yourself and don’t expect to much of yourself. Mums have a tendency to be their own harshest critic.
