Hello lybrate-user, loss of a close friendship can be quite painful& affect our daily functioning. It would be helpful if you are able to either patch things up with that friend or allow yourself to grieve that loss. You can appreciate the time you spent with the person & accept that things don't turn out happily every time. If you continue to have difficulty to function, it would be helpful to consult a psychologist who can help you to process your loss.

I am passing through a very hard time. Recently I broke up my 2.5 years relation with my girlfriend. Her mother refused me. I tried my level based to patch up the matter. And I was not in a position to escape her as both of us were determined to marry after compromise from both family. 1 month ago I talked last time with her and we both realized the situation. She tried to contact with me but every time I refused. But recently she is getting close with one of my friend with home I used to study during M. Sc. 5/6 years back. And the matter known to me via fb friend. After listening the matter from that day I am feeling weak to her and repeatedly remembering our sweet memories. I am trying to get rid of this. My sleeping habit also changed and became short. Last night I blocked that friend in fb. My family is searching a girl to marry recently. I am having financial problem too as I am repairing my home to look better for marriage purpose. I listen to music, view movies. But major problem is that I stay alone far from my home due to job. I have been trying to forget everything but when some of friend ask about her I became very emotional and helpless. please suggest me some way so that I can pass this hard time.

Breakdown is a chance for break through. Read stories of great people. Inspiring stories catapult change. Some people work intensely so that their mind is engaged in something productive, meaningful and give a sense of fulfillment. Keep a sentry to watch your thoughts. Politely tell, "Go away" to unwanted thoughts. Reading good books, engaging in hobby helps tide over sour patches of life. Best,

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Family problems are part of everyone's lives. You need to change the way you respond to the problems. Always remember that some things will be within your control to change and some will not be within your control. Best approach is to leave these things to get sorted out on their own and focus your energy on what you can change. Look at your options, weigh their pros and cons and choose what seems best to you. Not everything will be clear always. Some things will be ambiguous, that's the beauty of life. If you can prepare yourself for such situations instead of feeling anxiety or fear. Please click on consult if you have any questions.

Your level of self-confidence can show in many ways: your behavior, your body language, how you speak, what you say, and so on. Look at the following comparisons of common confident behavior with behavior associated with low self-confidence. Which thoughts or actions do you recognize in yourself and people around you? So here are our three steps to self-confidence, for which we’ll use the metaphor of a journey: preparing for your journey; setting out; and accelerating towards success. Step 1: Preparing for Your Journey The first step involves getting yourself ready for your journey to self-confidence. You need to take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, get yourself in the right mindset for your journey, and commit yourself to starting it and staying with it. In preparing for your journey, do these five things: Look at What You've Already Achieved Think about your life so far, and list the ten best things you've achieved in an "Achievement Log. Perhaps you came top in an important test or exam, played a key role in an important team, produced the best sales figures in a period, did something that made a key difference in someone else’s life, or delivered a project that meant a lot for your business. Put these into a smartly formatted document, which you can look at often. And then spend a few minutes each week enjoying the success you’ve already had! Think About Your Strengths Next, use a technique like SWOT Analysis Add to My Personal Learning Plan to take a look at who and where you are. Looking at your Achievement Log, and reflecting on your recent life, think about what your friends would consider to be your strengths and weaknesses. From these, think about the opportunities and threats you face. Make sure that you enjoy a few minutes reflecting on your strengths! Think About What's Important to You, and Where you Want to Go Next, think about the things that are really important to you, and what you want to achieve with your life. Setting and achieving goals is a key part of this, and real confidence comes from this. Goal setting is the process you use to set yourself targets, and measure your successful hitting of those targets. See our article on goal setting Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to use this important technique, or use our Life Plan Workbook to think through your own goals in detail (see the "Tip" below). Inform your goal setting with your SWOT Analysis. Set goals that exploit your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, realize your opportunities, and control the threats you face. And having set the major goals in your life, identify the first step in each. Make sure it’s a very small step, perhaps taking no more than an hour to complete! Start Managing Your Mind At this stage, you need to start managing your mind. Learn to pick up and defeat the negative self-talk which can destroy your confidence. See our article on rational positive thinking Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to do this. Further useful reading includes our article on imagery Add to My Personal Learning Plan – this teaches you how to use and create strong mental images of what you'll feel and experience as you achieve your major goals – there’s something about doing this that makes even major goals seem achievable! And Then Commit Yourself to Success! The final part of preparing for the journey is to make a clear and unequivocal promise to yourself that you are absolutely committed to your journey, and that you will do all in your power to achieve it. If as you’re doing it, you find doubts starting to surface, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally. If they dissolve under scrutiny, that’s great. However if they are based on genuine risks, make sure you set additional goals to manage these appropriately. For help with evaluating and managing the risks you face, read our Risk Analysis and Management Add to My Personal Learning Plan article. Either way, make that promise!

I am in a relationship with my girlfriend for the last 2 years. Both of us were in India till now. And now she would be going to Germany next month for PhD. Owing to the time difference between India and Germany we would be getting hardly 2 hours everyday, due to our busy schedule. These thoughts of separation has sent her in a depression and this is taking a toll on our relationship. Please suggest us what to do?

Dear , please understand she is not depressed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. She may not be mature enough to solve the problem fast. But it will be solved as time passes. You told that her depression takes the toll in your relationship. That may not be the case. She can always choose not to go to germany if she really loves you. She has to decide, whether career or you. Even if she chooses career and goes to germany, once there, her disappointment will be short lived. Being in conflict is the problem. I suggest you to advice your girl friend to consult me online. One or two counseling sessions should set her mind straight thinking. Take care.

I'm working in a IT company. From my school days I was bought up in a atmosphere where all like me and respect me. Infact most intelligent girl in school, college wherever I go. I'm very straight forward. I don't like people with two faces. I don't like people speaking at back. In my company I was put into designation which I feel like'it's not the right designation for me' I was put into support project in which I will have work for only an hour a day. But the company pays me very well. The thing is I'm not satisfied with my job now. During my college times I have a start up for me, for which I used to work for day and night. Sometimes I have not even come to home. I'm that much dedicated to my job I need a change from this job. There are many internal opportunities in my company. But my manager is not releasing me from this project. Yesterday I went to talk to my manager regarding this. And she doesn't speak like a manager she spoke like a local person. It triggered my anger I argued with her. She told many words which has hurt me very badly. Atlast convinced me since she was afraid I may escalate her. Now the problem is I'm disturbed. My mind is keep on thinking about yesterday's conversation in repeat mode. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I need some positive energy. I want to survive in that place. She made me felt inferior. :(I need a good counselling.

Dear lybrate-user, we cannot change the thinking of people around us what we can do is to make ourself such that we don't get affected by the behaviour of others. We cannot make everyone happy ,there is always two sides of coin. Is anyone that much important that you are wasting precious moment of your life for her/him. If someone will give you something and you will not accept that thing ,then that thing will remain with the same person, make your life's philosophy like this because at every stage of life there will be many people who will criticise you at different points of life and as you will progress then this criticism will increase ,think about the head of any nation how much criticism he/she has to face. Inspite of being the most powerful person people always cricises him/her for whatever he does. When these types of thought disturbs you write it on paper, make yourself busy as much as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this topic, make some good friends, with whom you can share everything, if possible take break for few days and make some plan to go anywhere. If you need my help you can contact me online also .take care.

You are a student now and you concentrate on studies. Your main intention should be on completing your degree. If you waste your time on unnecessary issues you will lose one year. Wasted time never returns. Later you will regret for that. So act bravely and concentrate on your studies. If your boyfriend does not understand you or your feelings , then he is no good. Don't enter into a deep relationship and repent later. Avoid him till you finish your exams.

Dear , Smoking, in the beginning, may not affect family sexual relationships. But family relationship may be at stake. Your wife may not like smoking and she and your children will be a victim of passive smoking. When age progresses, you will be troubled with sexual disorders due to smoking. Therefore, I suggest you to quit smoking. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

This is called as phobia, that is irrational fear. There will be no authentic reason to fear. To overcome this you have to convince yourself by saying that nothing happens . It's safe to go by bus or train. Many people travel daily. Try to accompany someone with you. Keep on practicing this type of travelling. Once you are convinced then there is no fear. Relax yourself before travelling. Give positive affirmation to yourself. If you are travelling alone, talk to the person who sits next to you. If it's a man and if you are not comfortable talking to him sit next to a lady and talk to her. By doing this you feel you are not alone. If you still feel anxious, do deep breathing exercise. This will definitely reduce your anxiety level.

Are you suggesting that your parents are an impediment to this career you have chosen? if so there must be reasons for their disapproval: the dangers of this career, or the lack of job and money-making opportunities etc. These could be valid concerns and you will need to prove them otherwise. Obviously you need some support and the best support I can think of is to get it from your mountaineering club or association and have one of the coaches or guides to come meet with your parents and have a talk. Now about this getting hyper, you know that that is not a solution and behaving rationally is the only way through this. No one will take you seriously, if you let your emotions get the better of you. You could also do career guidance counseling and attempt some tests in aptitude determination and take that also as evidence, if it points in this direction. The counselor will be willing to meet with your parents to help bring them around too. In all this you must approach it with a sensible mind and hold your emotions in check. Nothing should be obtained by blackmail: neither by your parents nor by you.

Hi lybrate-user! Depression may be due to inferiority complex as a result of people who keep mocking at you. As a result they make you look dull, and sad that is the reason for your depression. You shld start mocking at them at times though not always just try to. Try to not react. But be strong in heart, they slowly would get bored and would not mock at you. Be stronger and stronger in heart and mind. Try to build up your personality. Even if they moCK try to keep smiling always. Do not worry, you can definitely overcome this problem completely unless otherwise you volunteer to undergo treatment for the same. Take care. With regards,
