Our expert says:
You can tell the quality of a person, not by how often they might fall over, but by how often they get up. Bad things happen in all of our lives, and at random intervals, which doesn't mean all equally separated in time ; at times there's be a pile of several of them almost at once. The more we have to deal with, the more difficult we'll find it. The wise person seeks and works with help when they need it, from friends, and from a counsellor, as needed. Don't allow yourself to close up when with the counsellor, which is like keeping your mouth firmly shut when visiting the dentist. And discuss this aspect of the priblem with him / her.
As for the friends, I doubt that they only care when you're in difficulties, but this may be the time when they show their caring most obviously.
