How often have you heard or seen the presence of another language in your surroundings? Do you personally speak another language? Have you asked someone what they were saying or has anyone asked you what you were saying? With so many different cultures in our society and an emphasis on learning a foreign language in school, the presence of another language isn’t all that rare anymore.   Language often becomes a barrier in communication, though that need not be the case all the time. I perceive those questions as a desire to understand one another. Even if you speak the same language as someone else, if you aren’t trying to understand each other, it’s still useless. Language can only serve as a means for communication, what’s important is the individual’s desire to communicate their feelings with others. No one can understand how you feel and what you’ve experienced if you don’t tell them. Same goes for any problems that you might have – if you don’t try and solve them or find help, it’s unlikely that anyone can know what’s wrong.   Here’s when the NRS Hotline may be able to help you: if you find it too difficult to describe your problems to those close to you, perhaps try calling our hotline managed by trained volunteers. We will definitely try our best to help.   – Vivian
