panic self help
There are times in life when we all need a little help. Unwilling to admit we do can just prolong the problem. A self help group can not only be a great source of comfort, but also takes away the aching feeling you are all alone in your suffering.

No matter what the problem is, a self help group may be the method by which you can discuss, listen, interact, network, and be counseled by those who are probably going through the same life-altering struggle and pain you are experiencing. With so many groups available today, there is no reason to avoid seeking them out.

Whether you are an alcoholic; a drug user; have emotional problems; experience anxiety or panic attacks; have HIV/AIDS; wish to quit smoking; have bereavement issues; or have low self-esteem or are depressed, there is always a group available to help you. They are just a phone call or a short visit away, and more often than not, they are probably located in your local area. If you rather not express your feelings in front of large groups, you can always seek smaller more intimate settings. Perhaps someone you know has opened their home to others wishing to participate in a self help group. Maybe a friend or family member can offer recommendations for you to join a smaller self help group.

If you are uncomfortable letting anyone know about your problem, there are also a number of self help resources on the internet. A simple search in your favorite search engine for your problem will bring up a number of forums and other resources to help you deal with and cope with your problem. On these forums or chat rooms, you can remain completely anonymous and speak with others about your problems. They are often completely willing to listen because they understand. It’s also not as formal of a setting as a normal self help group, which many people find more comfortable.

There is no shame in asking for help. Furthermore, knowing others who are going through the same or similar ordeal can make a world of difference in helping you to cope and resolve your problem. If you are having a difficult time in your life, no matter what the cause, seek out a self help group. Remember, you are not alone. There are people who are willing to assist you with any problem you may have. Allow them to offer their hand in friendship. The difference they make in your life will enable you to make a difference in someone else’s life later on.
