Q-10:  I am 36 years old, working as a school teacher in government sector.  I have two sisters and one brother. My both parents have passed away. I am living with my sisters and our brother has left us after getting married.  We all are unmarried and no body helped to find suitable match for us. I feel inferior when people and my colleague inquired about my marriage. Sometimes, I feel too tense to go to bed. My occupational life is also being disturbed. I am using tranquilizers but after attending a workshop conducted by Drug Free Nation, I got realized that tranquilizers are harmful for me.  I want to quit it but could not do so. Kindly suggest me what should I do?  Samina-  Karachi
A:  It is a hard truth of life that our all desires and needs are not fulfilled.  Sometimes, we have to live in a way that we hate to live.  There are number of people who are alone, having financial difficulties, deprived of amenities etc.  We have to accept this reality. You and your sisters desire to have your own family but you do not have.   You are 36 years old, an educated woman and also doing a job. You can ask your elder sisters to find a match for you.  You can also consult a matchmaker or someone else you rely on.  If all these efforts are in vain then you try to accept the reality. Consult a psychological counselor to overcome your tension and lonely feelings. Having learned to fight your lonely feelings, you would be more able to adjust in your environment, and then you will not need to be dependent on tranquilizers. Furthermore, engage yourself in recreational activities; manage leisure time to be mentally relaxed. Gradually, you will see the results.  DFN
