What to do if I have a dilemma. I love to smoke rocks on the weekends, but i need to stop. How?

Your responsibility: If you enjoy abusing drugs but also "need to stop, " a question arises: why do you say you need to stop? If you're enjoying drug abuse in the short-term but believe that it is harmful to your life, your health, and your happiness over the long term, you have a decision to make: do you continue on your current path or do you choose a path that you believe to be superior? This is your predicament. ...Read more

Difficult: There's as you might be aware a distinction between a patient needing that level of care (e.g. due to health needing help can't be provided at home by relatives or professional carers) vs a person's choice (can't override unless they are mentally incompetent). Suggest see your GP to discuss a referral for needs assessment. This will establish whether needs rest home care. ...Read more

How would someone just let stuff go and not let it bother them and not worry about trying to please someone 24/7 seven days a week?

Then one would invite the other party to participate in either couples' or family therapy. If the other party refuses to negotiate or accept & adhere to the needed boundaries, one would talk with one's feet. ...Read more

Lastly, talk to your parents. They might be more understanding than you think. If not, maybe you have more to talk about than guilt. ...Read more

If you are 16 years: Old i would encourage you to sit down with your parents and explain what your concerns are. Medical evaluations to include psychological testing can be very expensive.

Is it better to confess my love for someone who does not love me & does not want a serious relationship. Or is it best to just avoid him & not confess?

Is it better to confess my love for someone who does not love me & does not want a serious relationship. Or is it best to just avoid him & not confess?

Be Strong and honest: Being honest about your feelings to someone whom you believe doesn't share those feelings is hard. It takes an inner strength to gamble rejection for the sake of honesty and the slim chance that they misread a benign friendship. Accept kindly that the other person "has a right" to not be in love. Strength and honesty build character, no matter what the other person does or says. ...Read more

How to solve my social anxiety if I don't even want to attend the university & I don't have enough time to go to a psychologist ?

How to solve my social anxiety if I don't even want to attend the university & I don't have enough time to go to a psychologist ?

Why?: Why attend the university if you don't want to be there? Why would you spend four or more years getting an education for which you have no use, or study a major/specialty you don't want? Why wind up in a career you don't like? Speak directly with your parents about it an tell them how you feel? I cannot imagine why they would want to see you doing something you don't want to. ...Read more

Is it good for my baby to have alone time or do I need to play with him constantly?

Is it good for my baby to have alone time or do I need to play with him constantly?

Whereas it's great fun to make a baby laugh, you will notice that whatever you are doing to get that belly laugh will eventually over-stimulate your baby and make them cry. You do not need to play with him constantly. You will both enjoy the quiet times too. ...Read more
