Question
(This is not a spam question or a homework question)
I was wondering would you please give me some advice on: how long should I wait until I get a reply from emails I send to businesses  or companies?

Thanks

Answer
Cameron, I propose the REAL question is "Why don't I (you) trust my own judgment on this question?" In my experience, people who doubt their own wisdom or decisions are often survivors of significant early-childhood abandonment, neglect, and abuse (trauma). To learn whether this may be true of you, see these:  http://sfhelp.org/gwc/gwc.htm  and http://sfhelp.org/gwc/means.htm
