We all need a shoulder to cry on. Whose shoulder will that be?

We all need a shoulder to cry on. Whose shoulder will that be?
We all need to open up when we have challenges to face. We get respite when we pour it all out. But one has to be discreet while looking for that shoulder that would give that relief All cannot do it Some have no character and would prefer not to be that shoulder.

My shoulder is Reiki. Reiki is a source that helps me face whatever challenge I have . It is kind of a spiritual healing. There are Reiki Masters that pass on that technique during 'atonement' There are several levels and I have mastered the first two that are sufficient for me to take care of myself and even help others in distress both mentally and physically. Reiki helps us to look for strength within us that makes us independent not having to rely on any shoulder to cry on. There is a promise that we have to make every single day that talks of us not getting angry, being honest, living in the attitude of gratitude, not being lazy and respecting those around us These five principles embody what is needed to live in peace, with a spring in our step.

We can also impart that peace to others by praying on them. There are symb ols that we need to master that are required to practice Reiki on ourselves or on others. I have full faith in Reiki and I have mastered this art since many years. Reiki originated in Japan and it has now spread far and wide. Tapping our inner sources is the best way to equip ourselves to face challenges in our day to day life.

Do you need outside support to face your challenges? . How do you go about coping with life when things do not go well with you? Do you believe in spiritual healing


When I am feeling extremely stressed I need my alone space. To get that I go north and spend time with nature. I will take a long hike or go to my favorite space to just get refocused. There is just something about spending time with nature that helps me so deal with the many struggles in life that I havr faced.

I'm not a cryer person so, I don't need any shoulder but when I'm feeling stressed, sad or angry I use to take a time to meditate alone, I use to find a lonely place where no one can bother me so, I can meditate quietly and think clearly what is happening to me and how can solve the problem that is annoying me. Also, sometimes, I use to talk with closest friends finding a solution to my problem or an advice.

I always look up to God in time of crisis and tribulations. I don't think there is any problem that is bigger than the God that I serve and in most of those cases, he has shown that he is a faithful God and one dependable maker. I try to work hard on a daily basis to have the best of lives and I don't think there will come a time when I will turn back on him no matter how tough the going gets.

As a Christian I lean solely on GOD, I believe there's nothing he cannot do, so even in the well, I believe it well with me.God has never disappointed me, he has been my source of inspiration and peace.So whenever I'm going through any storm I hold onto him and he has been a dependable friend at all times.

As humans, it is quite normal for us to feel low at times. Normally, when I feel down I listen to meditating music. Meditation and yoga have always helped me and I will recommend everyone to try these. Nowadays there are many good meditating pieces of music available online for free.

I also a catholic Christians and even I don’t go to mass every Sunday I see to it that I pray every day for guidance. Every time that I have big problems health, love, financial that I can’t hardly understand and don’t know what to do I will go to church and pray for guidance and peaceful mind so I can think the best way to do. When I’m really depressed I will just pray and cry in the church. I believe in Almighty God nothing is impossible to him and God is my shoulder to cry on.

I think in this fast life it's kind of hard to find the shoulder to cry. And it's even more harder to see how that can be something we need to check out on. You can see that many people are so focused on the life of others. They don't live their own in the process. And you have to understand that some of the time life is going to be complicated. And so we need some person around to understand us for that.

I'm an atheist so I won't rely on spiritual things or God when I need a shoulder to lean on. I've always been a fan of combat sports and when I'm feeling down I'll just practice a lot, it really makes me forget about all of the bad things. When I can't go to the gym, I listen to music or play video games, I need my alone space to feel better.

My shoulder is meditation. I read about meditation when I was a ninth grader. I was a 10th grader when I tried meditation for the first time. The experience was amazing. I am not meditating regularly these days, however, when ever I feel low, I sit to meditation. Meditation makes my mind calm.

Praying and talking to someone can really help. I do not know any methods that can help someone forget bad experience because even if some of us can get a shoulder to cry on, some bad memories will still haunt us and it feels like we can never be free. I haven't tried Reiki before.

I've faced a lot of adversities in life and I've learned to turn to God for everything. Trusting Him and His will has helped calm me at the lowest points of my life. Sometimes, though, we just needed to have someone to talk to and vent out. I have my sister for that and she's the only person I can trust with my secrets. Reiki is an alternative healing method developed by a Japanese Buddhist and has its roots on Buddhist beliefs. It's been adopted by various cultures and made to fit with their beliefs, oftentimes taking out the origin of the technique.

No matter how strong you may think you are, there will come a time where you need a shoulder to cry on. Personally, I think the best person to get support from is your family because they are the closest people to you and the ones that will support you no matter what. In a time of need, your family will always be there for you and will never give up on you which I why I think one of your closest family members is the best person to get help from.

We all need to cry out once in a while. It is the most natural thing in the world but it always helps if you have somebody that you can rely on, a shoulder to cry on.

For me, that is always my amazing partner, my family and my close friends. I am extremely grateful for all of them because even if I am sad or feeling down, they got my back and I know that they are always there for me.

I often turn to religion and meditation to help me get through the darker days of my life. Still, this is a very personal thing and there are no guaranteed methods for getting it right. Still, one thing is for sure. We all got to share our problems so others can help us address them

I often talk to people when I feel low. They can make me feel better. I also talk to God sometimes although I am not very religious. My pet comforts me as well. I am not that great at dealing with negative emotions though. It is one of the things in life that I struggle with. It makes me feel down, as it does to all.

Personally when I am at a loss with how to solve a problem or situation I usually turn to shooting hoops or going for a long walk or train ride. It doesn't work all of the time but 8 times out of 10 is a good percentage imo.
