At a time in your life you may need a little help making things more manageable. You might have tried to fix all your problems by yourself... you have asked family and friends for advise... a higher power to make things better , to give you the strength and foresight to face all your troubles. You've even tried to do your best until you learn better but nothing seem to change. If you don't make the time to work on creating the life you want , you are eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with the life you don't want.
