Issue: I find that I have a hard time communicating my thoughts. There are times when I just wish other people could read my mind.
Insight: Since people cannot read your mind, you need to have patience. When you find you are having difficulty communicating try to use more words and less body language and see if that doesn't help. Words can clarify thoughts the way that actions just can't.
Insight: When children don't communicate is is because they learned that behavior from someone of influence in their lives, usually a parent. The same way a person of influence can also build this bridge of communication as well. The way to build this bridge is to start sitting down with your child one on one and talk with them. Be open and honest with them about yourself as well. When they see that you are willing to trust them and share about what your spiritual struggles they will be more willing to come to you with their struggles.
Insight: It must feel like you are carrying a ton of bricks on your shoulders. I have a few ideas on how you could start dealing with these things and start to put them behind you. First of all, find someone you trust and share what has happened with them. Sometimes even being able to talk about it helps lighten the load. Secondly, if you really have trust issues and there is no one you feel like you can trust, try writing in a journal. Journalling is a great way to actually talk about what is going on and get out some of your emotions. Thirdly, you could give them over to God.
Issue: I want to be good, but I have trouble doing the right thing. I'm always grounded and can't have any fun. How can I stop getting into trouble?
Insight: One reason you might have for getting in trouble would be to get your parents attention. If this is the case, you should try to start a game with them or ask them if you can sit down and talk to them. Try spending positive time with them.
I strive to help others by being a safe place for others to ask questions and pose issues they face.
