Having support and someone to talk to is priceless. Who knows, you might need someone to talk to when you least expect it - that's how this is going to benefit you in the long run!

You won't feel alone. You will have someone to go to in your time of need. You will have someone there for you.

Unfortunately, we don't see the benefits of any of our life experiences until later on. Whenever we come out of them, there's no set time frame. Even the worst of our experiences will benefit us by making us stronger. Jaded, perhaps, so be wary of that. But I know now how to identify when I am falling back into old patterns of depression for example, and being able to identify makes it easier to cope.

It will help you to get things off your chest and help you learn skills that you can use on your own time to better yourself. :)

I have no idea. I am not sure what it is that you are talking about to be able to answer the question fully.

You didn't deserve the things you have struggled through, but they have shaped you into the person you are today. You are stronger than you believe. These experiences and the help you provide yourself will give you the life skills necessary for the future and build resilience.

I'm not sure what "this" is, but there are lots of things that can benefit us in the long run. Working through issues that complicate our lives can give us a better life in the future. Saving now and not spending all the time now can give us a nest egg for the future which can be used for children for college or for retirement to not have to worry about what to live on. Depending on what your "this" is, consider writing out a pros and cons list - I find that very helpful to make decisions if something is helpful for me or not.

When we listen we learn so much more. When we talk we are just repeating what we know. This is a wonderful opportunity to give to someone a space to hear her or his self and get their answers within. Is a life learning process.

Offering your help or service to another gets you out of yourself and it will give me a purpose. A way to give back what was given to me. To become more compassionate and loving . Build skills required to grow as a person and it gets ne outta myself and my own world and into someone else's for the moment because when you are helping someone else you can't be focused on yourself. It will help me learn patience and to become more grateful. I feel like it will help me more than them. Having someone to talk to that genuinely cares is priceless.
