One of the hardest things about being an adult is knowing whether or not you can ask for help. Although it can be hard to reach out to people to let them know that you're struggling, having a strong support system around you is incredibly important. Whether it's your friends or your family, it's never a bad thing to ask someone for a little bit of help and support.

Couples - Need a Strong Support System

Years ago, I struggled with my mental health. It was something growing up that I was told and believed at the time, was weak. Growing up I heard:

“You never talk to anyone about your feelings. They are yours.”

“What happens at home, stays in the home. No matter how bad it gets.”

“How I treat you, is your fault.”

It wasn't until I met my husband that I realized that those 3 phrases were a bunch of crap.

From those times when you're struggling with work to the moments where you're doubting your relationship, you need to ensure you're reaching out to those that can help. With that in mind, here are 5 signs you might need a strong support system:

You're Struggling With Work

If you’re struggling with issues at work, finding someone you can trust to talk to is important. Whether that means speaking to someone you work with or talking to your friends and family, often it can be hard to escape a place that you have to endure 5 days out of 7.

In a lot of cases, talking through your work-related issues and getting an outside perspective is all you need to feel motivated again. For more tips and tricks when it comes to improving your motivation at work, you can visit this site here. 

Things Are Not Right In Your Relationship

Relationships can be incredibly difficult as often the person you want to talk to is the person making you feel as though you’re struggling. If that’s the case, you need to ensure you’re surrounding yourself with people that you know and love. You’ll be back to your normal self before you know it.

If you're in an abusive relationship (mentally, physically, emotionally, etc) I strongly suggest you reach out to someone, anyone. Quite often the person who you least expect to help you often is the only one who can help you the best way available. But if you can't talk with someone who is close to you, there are other options.

You're Thinking Of Starting A Family 

If you’re thinking of starting a family then you definitely need to think about having a strong support network around you. Getting pregnant and raising a baby is one of the most rewarding things you can ever do, but also one of the most stressful. Whether you’re struggling with fertility or you’re not a natural when it comes to parenting, you need to ensure you’ve got people around you that can offer support. If you are struggling when it comes to fertility, you may want to consider looking at the Advanced Fertility website.

Mental health can be incredibly difficult and if you’re noticing that you’re struggling on a daily basis, having a strong support system is important. From professional doctors to friends and family, the more people you’re opening up for the better. For guidance when it comes to looking after your mental health, you can visit this site here. 

You're In Trouble Financially 

Finally, if you’re in trouble financially then you may want to ensure you have a strong network of people around. Although they don’t have to help you with your finances, they should be there to support you emotionally.
