    But councellors are really fun to wind up, by being not quite insiteful enough for them to pick up on anything meaningful.
    It makes you feel alot better to wind them up!
    Or is it just me?
    i tend to think one has failed in life the day one feels the need to visit a counsellor

    Why is that?
    Why is having the confidence to talk to someone and reach out for help failure?
    Surely its better than living the rest of your life with problems, or killing yourself or stuff.

    no it just mean that they are able to face up to the fact that they have a problem unlike some. repressing the fact that you need help only makes it worse, you have only failed when you fail to recognise that you need help, and fail to admit it.

    one should be strong enough to deal with their problems - i was 'depressed' last year in a sense - exams were a drag - but i got through it and i am happy now

    To be honest, thats rather an unnatural thing, that there aren't things you don't want to talk about with your parents.
    But i suppose i'm too far of the edge at the other end of the scale.
    I'm happy not to talk to my parents about anything.

    same here. i find friends a better alternative, same age group, no limitations as to how far you can go into depth.

    A rather solitary life though. Not ever asking for help. Not opening up weaknesses to others.
    But maybe its just that i think that people are important in my life.

    A great, in depth response there.
    I can totally see the complex reasoning involved in your argument. (is that use of totally rather... second rate american teen TV show?)

    Well, there are limits, but they are usually self imposed from the nature of the friendship.
    But i get your point, and agree to some extent, although if people think you've got lots of problems, they do tend to avoid you (which i can sadly say from experience).
    Talking to total strangers has always been good for me, although thats usually after too much alcohol.

    But, you are bringing your own point of view into a negative light by using personal insults, rather than discussing the topic.

    I tend to agree. Not that long ago people spent four years engaged in trench warfare standing up to their knees in ****.There wasn't any counselling on their return.

    Now I'm not saying this was right. It is an extreme example. However, nowadays it seems some folks can't even take an exam without having nervous breakdown.

    That's one of the reason the country is falling apart. It's a decadent country populated by a soft as shite society.

    I'm thinking that maybe I should try counselling, but it will be hard because I'm normally the type of person who helps evrybody with their problems, rather than talking about my own.
    But then, saying that, maybe trying to be strong has played a part in everything. Maybe I should've asked for help ages ago.

    if you think you need help then ask for it. dont be ashamed, forget what everyone else thinks, they're not going through the same thing as you. just do what you feel is right, if you feel you'll benefit from counselling, then go for it. forget everyone else, they'll just hold you back by putting doubts in you rmind an dgiving you more to think about. the first reaction is normally always the best. just go with it.
