I Have Too Much On My Plate

Question:

I am getting married in two months, and that is about the only thing that I am not stressing about at the moment.

I have a dreadful job where I am getting bullied to the point where I have already had to take sick leave.  I am facing redundancy – I am not sure when, but I have already heard on the grapevine that I am on the list.  If I hang in there I will get a redundancy package but then I will be unemployed at the time when I need money for the wedding.  If I sue the company for bullying, I will probably win the case but the company won’t pay damages – they have done the same with two other people in the last two years.

My best friend is not supportive at all, and at the moment blames me for stuff in her life that has nothing to do with me.  This is adding to my stress to the point where I just want to walk away from our friendship.

My Long-Distance Relationship Is Failing

Question:

I met this incredible girl when I was in college, and I really care deeply about her.  It is a second relationship for both of us.  Her first relationship was long-distance.  He started cheating on her after a few months, and she had no idea about it.  She even went to visit him and as far as she was concerned they were very happy.  He then dumped her just after her birthday. 

I knew her at the time but our relationship only started a while after hers ended.  We were very happy initially, but then I finished my studies.  Because of finances I had to move back home, and this means I am only able to visit her every two months. I am now saving money so that we can move in together soon.  We do communicate regularly with IM, video and phone, but it is not the same.  I feel I am losing out because I cannot see her face or hear her voice, and that causes misunderstandings that turn out to be quite hurtful for both of us. 

She still has her studies and she works two jobs to earn some money.  She comes home late at night when her family is already asleep, and she has nobody to talk to.

I am very concerned that she is more and more depressed, and on top of that she is turning into a nasty piece of work - even her friends complain about her behavior.

 

I really want to help and support her as much as I can, but I feel like I am walking on eggs every time I speak to her.  In this way her stress is getting to me.  She is now playing this game where she is blaming me for not knowing what is wrong with her, and also not telling me anything – she shuts me out and I feel she is destroying all the closeness we had.

I Have Lost My Job. What Do I Do?

Step 1: Breathe deeply and relax. Count your blessings.

Step 2: Do not take it personally, but take it very personally.

Step 3: Celebrate the next cycle of your life

I can hear you saying "There are bills to be paid.  There is an ego that needs massaging.  How will I cope until I can find another job during a time of recession?  And she says I should relax and celebrate?"

Yes, I am serious about my advice, which comes from first-hand experience.
