Every once in a while we all need a break. It could be from work, family, children, a partner, and for some people life. There are times when life hits individuals so hard that before making any decisions, or facing whatever is going on, they need a break. We all need a break from work. That is what holidays are for. However, sometimes it goes beyond that. I am sure that during tax season, regardless of the country, that right before and right after all taxes are due, the preparers need a break. A few of the people I know that do tax preparation for a living, always need a break after the season is over. In the United States it just ended. and the individuals I am acquainted with always take a break. They need it because the work is so intense. When a marriage or partnership is having difficulty, sometimes a break is exactly what they need. Then there are the individuals who can’t figure out how to deal with things in life, and if they don’t take a break, then they reach the breaking point and end up with serious problems. Some even require mental health professionals. It is very said because what they really needed was a mate or friend to help them. Occasionally, they ask for help from a family member who turns them down. In the movie, “Crocodile Dundee” Mick couldn’t understand why the people he met were in therapy. He was sure that if they spoke to their mates that they would all help them solve their problems. There are people who have been in therapy for years and it may be that they need that much help or that they really don’t have anyone to talk to on a close personal basis who would have the ability to assist them. Many people think to themselves, that they will take a break only not at the time they really need it. They will postpone it and then when the opportunity is gone, everything turns even worse. The old Irish Saying, “There is nothing so bad that it couldn’t be worse,” is wrong because it can. For example, look at the people living in various European countries and the United States. No one thought that terrorism would rear its ugly head in San Bernardino, California, Paris, France, or Brussels, Belgium. It did get worse and it occurred more than one time. So the next time someone tells you to take a break, you might want to listen to them. They obviously care about you and are giving you good advice. There was never time to take a break in the old west as their livelihood depended upon the weather and each other. If the heirs of a trust or will are getting you down, take a break and visit maecharlesbooks.com and read “Misplaced Trust.” It may be exactly what you need.
