Get Online Help for Your Problems at Aha!NOW

black man seeking online help to solve problems

Whom do you reach out to for help when you’ve a problem? Mostly, it’s your family, partner, and spouse, isn’t it?

If it’s not the family, then you have friends whom you confide in and share whatever you want to share.

With social networking sites and blogging, it’s become easier to make friends even across the seas, and ask for online help or suggestions that you’d have asked your family or local friends.

People often ask me questions over the social media, on my blog posts, and even via emails about solutions to their personal problems.

Getting help online is convenient because you don’t have to step out of your house and can find online solutions easily.

While I’m no expert, I use my own life experiences and wisdom to help out whoever reaches out to me.

But I feel bad that though I do try to answer them all, at times I can’t due to time restraints. This made me think of starting a new feature on Aha!NOW.

It’s going to be an online help platform, where no question will go unanswered and every problem will receive a solution or practical suggestion, for bloggers and non-bloggers alike.

But before I reveal more about my plans, let’s learn why we should share problems.

“A problem shared is a problem halved” ~ an English proverb

Sharing Problems

You might have heard of the above quote before and experienced it in your life too. Sharing your problems DOES help.

At times, you need a non-judgmental listener, so that you can empty out your worries, frustrations, or fears, and just vent out. You need someone to talk to and lighten your heart.

When you share your feelings and problems, you’ll –

● Release the built-up tension
● See the problem clearly and in a new light
● Know that you’re not alone
● Seek solution

Before the pent-up feelings turn negative and harm you, seek a vent and release them. Share your problems.

You never know if someone might suggest something that could act as a solution and end your painful problems. You could achieve happiness just over a chat if you’re seeking online help.

Though I don’t guaranty solutions, but I’m sure that sharing your problems will lessen your burden, and you’d increase the chances of seeking a solution. It’ll keep you mentally healthy as well.

I’m referring to your general problems that you face in your daily life. The problems related to your family, relationships, work, health, and other aspects of life.

How do you share your problems? Well, there are various ways to do so, and here’s one of them.

I’d suggest you share all your problems, here at Aha!NOW. You read it right, here’s exactly how to do that.

“Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.” ~ Anthony Robbins

Online Help from the Aha!NOW Blog Community

I’m starting a new section on the blog called “Share Your Problems”. That’s right, it means sharing with the entire Aha!NOW blog community. And, since you too are part of this community; this new blog feature involves you too!

Would you like to chat, listen, or give suggestions based on your life experiences to those who have problems and are waiting to get online help or solutions?

You’re ALL rich with your life experiences.

You have knowledge and information that can help somebody. There are people who’re struggling in life and probably don’t have your practical wisdom.

All I’m asking you to do is to share your wealth – the pearls of wisdom that you acquired over a period of time by laboring through difficult times and problems yourself.

Your 2 cents or practical suggestions could save people from going through hardships and waste their valuable time and money, or ruin their relations and life.

Not only you and I, every community member has valuable opinions, suggestions, and solutions that can help somebody in need and bring happiness into their lives.

Assuming you want to help and are wondering how you would do so – here’s the plan.

“Every solution to every problem is simple. It’s the distance between the two where the mystery lies.” ~ Derek Landy

two women sharing problems online on laptop

Every month I’ll be posting one topic, and I’ll ask people to share their personal problems and life’s issues.

When you, as a solution provider, come on the post, you can choose to reply to any specific problem that you think you’re competent to answer.

You can even subscribe to comments to be informed if you’ve been replied to, or to know if there are more problems out there that you can contribute to with your suggestions.

You can choose to answer whenever you feel like or get time for it. This would be one way of giving back and helping others.

Of course, I’ll be there too and try to help out people with what I know.

Again, this is not in any way a substitute for professional help that people should get from a trained therapist or a counselor, if their problem is serious.

This feature is for not only the blog community members or regular bloggers, but you’re welcome to seek online help even if it’s your first visit to the blog. It’s open for everyone seeking help online.

You have me and the entire Aha!NOW blog community listening and ready to help you!

I’d request all community members, readers, and visitors to share what they know best from their life experiences to help those in problem.

You can be anonymous if you wish and think it will help you to be open and be yourself, as a solution seeker or provider.

I might still moderate the comments if they are worthwhile and conform to the ethos of the blog. I will remove the links of all anonymous comments.

“Share Your Problems” starts on Friday, 7th February with the first topic of “Relationship Problems”. You can seek solutions to your relationship issues and problems from all of us.

Of course, it would be up to you to choose the solution or suggestion that you think best suits you, and that helps you deal with your problem.

“Happiness is not the absence of problems; it’s the ability to deal with them.” ~ Steve Maraboli

Over to You –

Do you ever seek online help for your problems? Do you think it helps? If you don’t have a problem, would you help out those who’re in need? What do you think of this new feature on Aha!NOW? Share in the comments below.

    Oohhh! I’m super excited about this new feature you’re implementing!! Can’t wait to see it in action.

    I do come online quite a bit to find answers to my problems. I love being able to get a diverse opinion about the situation at hand. I oftentimes get answers from my boyfriend, but it’s always a good idea to get a variety of responses. For that reason alone, I like the idea of working in a team! I’m always amazed at the creativity and problem-solving skills of others.

    And, since I love teaching, I also love helping people resolve problems or even just learn something new.

    (As a side note: When I was reading this post, it got me thinking that you could also host a monthly Aha!Now webinar that would be similar in nature to the blog post. Just a thought!)

    Looking forward to the new addition to your blog! I love the creativity you’re adding this year!

      Hi Jennifer,

      I’m so glad you like the idea. Frankly, I was a bit skeptical about how would people and bloggers take this. It’s all about time as I know bloggers are super busy, so finding time to comment and help people is not easy. I’m happy to see you excited about this opportunity.

      It’s great to know that you do use online help for yourself. Yes, you’re right that you get diverse opinions, and you can choose what best suits you. Having said that, I do not in anyway mean to say that professional help is not good. But taking a leaf from the pages of experience of others is not bad.

      Oh yes, sometimes when you’re stuck with or into a problem, even the seemingly obvious eludes your perceptions. Others can help you look and think in simple ways that can help you deal with your problems.

      It’s good to see the common ground between us. I too love teaching (I was a certified teacher!) and am passionate about helping others. It’s just great to be with like-minded people like you. 🙂

      Thanks for your great idea! I’m taking baby steps to develop Aha!NOW as a real help blog, and a webinar would facilitate in a great way. It’s just that I’m a bit wary of the technicalities involved, but I’m sure I’ll get over this obstacle.

      Thank you for your motivation and support. Thanks for your time and effort to contribute to this post. have a great weekend ahead! 🙂

    Hello Harleena,

    This was an excellent blog post. Sometimes as bloggers we go through different feelings. I know I do sometimes and my family just can’t relate because they are not doing blogging. So, it really helps to talk with other bloggers because you can discuss with them what’s going on in the online world. It’s nice to be able to talk with people who are doing what you are doing and share the same interests. Thanks for sharing this with us!

      Hi Maketta,

      I’m glad you like the post. I can totally understand your woes as a fellow blogger. Blogging is a time consuming and laborious job, which can even disrupt your lifestyle if you try to do many things and go into its depths. You do need help at times to reconcile with your other aspects of life. You’re right in that those who’re not into blogging find it difficult to understand what all it takes.

      I intend to develop a platform for discussion of all aspects of life; personal, family, and professional. Blogging too is very much part of the whole picture. I hope you’ll find it useful.

      Thanks for visiting my blog and contributing your thoughts and views. Do have a great weekend ahead! 🙂

    Hello Harleena,

    The one thing i hate, seeing a fellow human like me ask for help and i couldn’t. I love helping people no matter how hard the task may be (but comes with limit).

    If i tell you yes, that means i will see that thing through…

    Like you, you have helped me in so much way. glad i have a friend like you. Indeed you have rolled out a cool strategy that will favor you and your audience pretty soon.

    Glad to be in the community dear friend. Do have a meaningful weekend over there… 🙂

      Hi Babanature,

      We all need help at some or the other time in life. And, it’s not bad to ask for help. In fact, if you restrain yourself from sharing your problems, you may even hurt yourself in ways you don’t realize. It’s good to know that you love helping people, and that’s one of the traits of good people.

      We all have our limits to help others because we’ve to help ourselves first and carry out our own liabilities and responsibilities. That’s all fine. It’s good if we can take a bit of time for others too.

      I’m glad I could help you and that you feel this way. Anything for friends if that’s within my capability, ability, and possibility. It’s great you like the new feature on Aha!NOW. Yes, it will help me, the blog, and the people too.

      Thanks for your thoughts and views, and your time to visit the blog. You too have a happy weekend! 🙂

    Hi Harleena

    This is a good idea! I know there are people out there who don’t reveal their sentiments and issues to a friend or a family member for fear of getting exposed, some are too coy to share, some fail to put it into the right words to explain and on the other hand are listeners who are not patient, are too judgmental or their interpretations turn out to be quite weird.

    Your idea takes me back to my work place, where we were having our own confidants to share problems and seek advice or ideas to address even everyday issues. So this is a very good idea to get closer to your little community of blogosphere. I am sure you are on the right track, once again!

    looking forward to 7th February! All my best wishes! And once again, have a nice weekend.

      Hi Balroop,

      It’s great you like my idea for the new feature on the blog. You’re so right that sometimes its not easy to share your problems even if you’ve your family and friends around you. You need to maintain your privacy, and then there are options to seek professional or online help. Though sometimes even online help can backfire if the help providers are not authentic or they do not understand the person and the problem, or if the help seeker blindly accepts the provided solutions. I’m aware of this fact and that’s why I emphasize more on venting out and lending an ear.

      Even the corporate have the system in place, then why shouldn’t we too have it in our personal lives, right? It is indeed another reason for the blog community to bond together and help each other to bring happiness into life.

      Thanks for your positive feedback and good wishes. I surely needed them and I hope this feature will unfold as planned. Thanks for taking the time to contribute to this post. Enjoy your weekend! 🙂

    Hi! Harleena,

    Wonderful Idea!! I agree with you that online help is no substitute for professional help. But sometimes people need that extra push to go in that direction. And then there are problems one can only ask fellow writers/bloggers, problems your family says they don’t understand at all :-). Yes, I reached out to my connections online for help recently and it really helped. Left me amazed!!

    Count me in…I’d love to help!

    Best Wishes! Have a Wonderful Weekend!

      Hi Priya,

      It’s good to know that you too like the idea. I guess my instincts were right and I’m happy I followed my intuition. This is more or less going to be an amateur help platform, though experts would be welcome to share their expert tips.

      Indeed, professional help is a must for serious problem, be it related to family, personal, or even professional spheres of life. But, mutual discussion and sharing among like-minded or people having been through the same problems does help a lot.

      It happens that sometimes your main support hub, the family fails to understand you, because they don’t have a clue about what you’ve to undergo as a blogger. Reaching out to fellow bloggers can really take much burden off you and recharge you to get on to blogging with greater fervor.

      Thanks for your support and motivation, and I’m so happy that you’ve agreed to volunteer. Thanks for your visit and your wonderful thoughts and views. Do have a pleasant weekend! 🙂

    Hello Harleena mam,

    Indeed great initiative and I must appreciate it. 🙂

    Well, it is a great idea to share our problems with online community and get solution in no time. Yes, the roots of problems are initially on the upper surface, it can be uprooted easily if we share and get solution. So, it is better to share before problem goes into deeper in our heart and soul.

    I love quotes right in the middle of blog, especially, the quote which says problem is a gift because I believe problem makes man brave and strong. I am eagerly waiting for your new initiative and hoping for the best.

    Thank You for posting it.
    Have a nice day ahead!! 🙂

      Hi Kumar,

      I really appreciate your appreciation of my initiative! 🙂

      I think it’s important to have a trusted source for online help, and I know that my community members can be blindly trusted for their genuine help. People can always find someone or the other to listen to them or give suggestions that may help them in some or the other way.

      You’re right that it’s better to identify and work towards the problem before it settles deep down. And, also your problems weaken as your understanding and awareness increases.

      Problems are indeed helpful, but sometimes they can be overwhelming if we do not understand them in the right light. It’s your attitude that turns a problem from a pot hole to a stepping stone. But it’s your negative emotions that play the spoilsport, and you fall prey to them.

      Thank you for your support and eagerness to be a part of this project. I’m sure you’ll benefit and help others too.

      Thanks for your comment and your views. Have a great Sunday! 🙂

    More interesting things coming up!

    This is an excellent and unique way to bring your community members closer to each other Harleena. While this does not take the place of professional assistance, I’m very sure there are problems that could be solved 100% by just sharing here.

    You are at the same time opening a door for experts in various fields to gain more recognition and exposure.Yes! The more you propose solutions to problems, the more you get noticed.

    Wonderful addition dear friend 😉

      Hi Enstine,

      Yup, more goodies out of the bag, and I’m glad that you and all others have liked it. 🙂

      This feature will not only bring the community members closer and understand each other better, but also help anonymous visitors who never comment but always read. One of the ways that helps in resolving our problems is learning or taking cues from the problems of others and how they go about dealing with it, isn’t it?

      Of course, these will be amateur and personal opinions of people so they cannot take place of a professional help, but you can get a shoulder to lean on, a warm hug, or a sympathetic ear to vent out, and that really helps the person in a problem. I don’t guaranty 100% solution, but its better sharing problems rather than curbing them and suffocating yourself.

      I do hope and welcome the experts to use this opportunity and platform to give their valuable suggestions and advice to those who mention their problems here. Indeed, this move is going to help me, but that’s just a byproduct that I’m not really focused on right now. The main aim remains to create a authentic and dependable help platform.

      Thank you for your acceptance of this project and your motivation and support. I really needed it and appreciate it. Thanks for your contribution and hope you’ve a great Sunday! 🙂

And it’s all for free, we all are going to volunteer. However, you may only treat it as a community and peer help, and not as a professional help, for which you need to consult a professional.

      Thanks for your visit and have a great day ahead! 🙂

    Ooh! I can’t wait to see how this endeavor works out. People often ask me for advice online and I find it very hard, because I want to ask them a whole bunch of questions. Guess that is my nature. Basically people just need some non judgment. They need acknowledgment and love. People want to know it is going to be ok and that they are not crazy! Looking forward to the 7th!

      You’re one of the most important member of the community who I’d like to contribute in this project. You’re a professional counselor and your advice and suggestions will certainly always be valuable.

      I understand your point and it’s important to know the person in complete detail before prescribing your suggestions and advises, as it may differ from person to person, their background, nature, the situation they are in et al. Presently, I’m only trying to develop a place where people can share their problems and to provide, as you mention, some non-judgmental help, right out of our own life experiences.

      Thanks for your visit and your candid comment and I too look forward to your visit on 7th. Take care and have a great weekend! 🙂

      Thank you for your appreciation, and I really hope my blog can help people in all aspects of their lives. It’s not only going to be me, but the entire community who can provide help, and I’m really happy to see so many community members already volunteering to do so.

    Not only will sharing your problems help you, but it will help others. After all, Dear Abby has been around for some time. 🙂

      It’s good to know that you’ve been actively participating in such activities on other sites. I’m sure your nuggets of wisdom will surely help those who present there problems on Aha!NOW.

      Dear Abby is a great service and presently I’ve no plans to match it, or run as long as it does. I just want my project to be a small community volunteered service, where members contribute a few minutes to help strangers and friends alike with lessons from their own life experiences.

    Hi Harleena; what a generous and ambitious addition this will be to the aha network.

    I wish you all the best with it and plan to be around to help where i can. being a blind computer user and blogger i’m always reaching out for solutions to business or technical problems. Have not thought about using such a group for personal problems, but that is probably because i don’t know of a group run by someone who i would trust. so, your name brand should bring in a lot of people needing help. i figure my value will be in encouraging people and bringing a positive mindset to the discussion. I’m looking forward to the 7th. thanks and take care, max

      Thank you for accepting to volunteer to help those in need, where ever you can. I always admire your spirits, and yes seeking help is something good that propels our growth.

      Yes, it is essential for the place, person, or group to be genuine and trustworthy to seek help from and I’m honored that you trust me and my blog to be such. I’m sure your encouragement and efforts will help the initiative to take its envisioned shape.

    Hi Harleena,

    This sounds like a wonderful development at Aha!NOW. I will be delighted to help if anyone shares a problem I might be able to assist with.

    In answer to you question, when I first decided to deal with stammering, the first place I came to was online, so yes, I definitely have seeked help online and would continue to do so in the future. There is so much good information and support available online.

    Thank you.

    Hi Harleena,

    This sounds like a very exciting development for your blog – I’m sure it will prove extremely popular. I’ll be very happy to chip in and help out if there’s ever any topic that’s within my areas of expertise.

    I’ve often sought help online, for all kinds of things – I’m sure for many people, these days, Google is often their first port of call.

    I hope this is a great success for you, Harleena and look forward to seeing how it develops 🙂

    Nice one Harleena Singh,

    I am a big believer of ‘problem shared is problem solved’. It feels good to know that someone is willing to listen to your problem irrespective of how stupid or insignificant you, think it will sound.

    Is a great concept 🙂

    Harleena,
    It is true that there is no problem which doesn’t have a solution provided one shares the problem or the issue.
    To me your idea seems very good and hope it will,succeed.
    Tell me,what will be the level of confidentiality ?

    This is a very brilliant idea Harleena,
    And, I’m sure a lot of your readers will love it because there is a saying that….. a problem shared is half solved and, I agree with that.

    This is indeed a very amazing bonus to the Aha-now community. Let’s watch and see how it goes 🙂

    What a great idea Harleena and you sure do go above and beyond to help others. I think this will be a great new addition and I know for me it’s great to get other people’s perspective at times or thoughts on how to do something or maybe suggestions on better ways.

    I know at times when we have a problem we can’t always see all of the solutions ourselves. If we did then we’d probably be able to resolve this quicker. I know for me at times I’m slapping myself on the head thinking why didn’t I think of that.

    This will be fun so thanks for sharing this with us and I’m excited for you and us!

    Enjoy your week and I’ll see you again soon. 😉

    This is my first time of visiting your blog Harleena but I have known and always seen you in online communities, commenting on other blogs, and so many other places that I can’t even mention all, but by only regret is not visiting this blog long before now. I felt I have missed out a lot the moment I landed here today and seeing what is happening here, I never knew that you are such a great writer, but I was able to witness it on this my first visit and I am so thrilled by what I am seeing, meaning that I will come back here again and again because it seems that some of my problems if not most of them will find some useful help here. Honestly, I just love what you are doing and the community is huge here.

    Talking about help, I know that we all need help at one point in our life or the other, even the richest men in the world do need helps too. I have received help from many and it has thought me to love helping others too, no matter how tiny the help could appear, it just gives me joy to see that someone out their acknowledges that I did something for him/her. Finally with this your community I believe you can move mountain together with them members in here.

    Seems like an interesting (and valuable) feature 😀

    It makes sense though, especially for your blog, with such a large community. This is one platform one does not want to miss 😀

    Well, good luck with the this (I don’t think I have any relationship problems…The only problems I might have is silly fights with my sister, but that’s okay :D). I am not in any relationship either, so I don’t think I can offer much help. But, I will try to join in for the other topics.

    As for solving problems, well it largely depends upon how big the problem is.

    The first thing I do is try to solve it myself (look up on Google :D). If that doesn’t work, well then I will call my parents and/or friends – depending upon what sort of problem it is.

    Anyways, thank you sharing this update, Harleena 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    I most definitely turn online for help with various kinds of problems, particularly if they’re related to my online life. Usually that relates to business, website development, dealing with clients or advertisers (which can also leak into the personal/feelings zone).

    I tend to have a harder time expressing my personal feelings and deeper issues online. Since I am in many ways “a brand” online. Don’t get me wrong. I discuss fear, dealing with rejection, trying to find balance and other similar life issues openly. I write about them on my blog (quite often) and discuss them openly, because I know I’m not the only one who faces these things as obstacles to happiness and success.

    But I am careful to keep a line between the really deep personal, particularly things that involve other family members.

    Whatever the case, I love this idea of yours. It’s fantastic. I look forward to reading more!

    Wow Harleena!

    What a great service this will be! Yes, as the English proverb at the beginning of your post says, sharing a problem does relieve half of it.

    If I have a problem, there are so many people on line that I can go to. Remember a few weeks ago when I posted I had to put my dog down? I did so because I wanted to notify my blogging buddies that I wouldn’t be around for a while.

    But so many people had comforted me and gave me encouragement. That took half the load off my heart.

    This is a wonderful way to get people together and help one another. I’m on a Facebook Group for “Healthy Living” because I wanted to take more time out of my day to focus on cooking healthy meals and getting out to the gym. What a great support group that has been for me.

    Here, the same applies. I’m sure this will be a great place to come to get advice and to give it.

    Many Blessings,

    -Donna

    Hey Harleena,

    This is a great thing that you’re doing. Having an online help section on your site is a great idea, and as i was reading I was thinking, why didn’t I think of that LOL…

    The only thing I seeked help for was for online marketing. It was never for what’s going on in my personal life, but i definitely want to check it out and see how I can be of value to someone else. I also expect to learn something myself, then maybe i’ll be brave enough to talk about my personal problems.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Harleena mam,

    you are awesome and too creative. very rarely i did comment on your blog because i am tech blogger and can’t comment too long like other your readers. But this time i cant stop myself to comment here and appreciate you.

    Anyway It is very well said there is a solution of every problem. most of the people don’t want to share their problems due to their preserving nature and shy attitude. But it is always good to share your problems and ask for helps.

    Great way to interact with community and engaged with more peoples.

    Hi Harleena,

    That’s a great idea you had here, and people love this type of chatting space where they can share their problems and feelings and offer help as well.

    I will check it out.

    Great you got back into blogging, even though I knew you were still around.

    Have a great day!

    What a lovely idea, Harleena. It’s no surprise to me that you would come up with such a great idea. It is true that there is so much knowledge out there. And I absolutely agree that sometimes merely sharing our problems and concerns takes a huge weight off of our shoulders. And seeing people provide support, comfort and shared knowledge and experiences can really eliminate a lot of fear or isolation people sometimes feel when they are hurting. Love this idea and thank you for bringing it to life. Can’t wait to see it in action! Have a great weekend!

    What an awesome idea, Harleena! Love it! I tend to be the type of person to shoulder problems, rather than unburden them. I can be too private at times and am I working on being more open about my feelings and feeling comfortable sharing. It always amazes me how many people are willing to lend support and the relief it feels to finally let go of my problems!

    Hi Harleena,

    I think this is a great idea. I haven’t sought advice online but I do enjoy reading blog post that are relative to the issue I”m dealing with. With Facebook groups like Bren’s My Girly Parts it’s a wonderful resource to get information and even let out our feelings.

    I’m looking forward to this new series! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Hi Harleena,

    What a heart felt gesture and concept you have here. I am so excited to see where you go with this and how your community grows. I’ll be stopping by and if you need any advice along the way for those in your community, I will be more than happy to offer it up.

    I think that an online community is a great way to get through the things that are requiring questions outside of yourself. Sometimes getting a perspective from someone who is not close to you makes a world of difference!
