Yes, but perhaps not always an actual solution, but something new that gave them hope of a solution. That's my own experience, anyway.
The best thing to do, is exactly what you're doing right now: seek help. However, you need someone who's actually a professional.
Seeking help is vital, for we simply can't manage alone. Some professionals are excellent; others useless, unempathic and quite unsuited to the job - and I've met both types. If a professional fails to gain to gain your trust at first meeting, then don't see them again, for the stress they create isn't worth it. Request another and explain why. Some cause us more harm than good, and we need to be able to protect ourselves from them. Some non-professionals have become as good as good professionals - 'experts through experience'. Some professionals are also this too.
I do know one thing: when you finally overcome a hard time, that's when life feels the best. Is it really worth going to a path that you don't know... or is it better to overcome that obstacle with all the help you need, and then look back and say: "I made it"
I love this! Beautifully put... so true and inspiring.
