It’s true that at some point in life, we all have the want and need to be independent. We hate to ask for help from others because there is a stigma that it shows weakness. We don’t want to burden others with our problems so we just keep attempting to solve them ourselves. We continuously fail.
However, that is a weakness stigma is a false representation. In fact, asking for help from others and acknowledging your need for them is a sign of maturity and a true act of wanting to improve upon oneself. Loved ones will be relieved to be able to openly help.
There is a proverb that goes, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Going faster alone leads to nowhere because all the in-between steps are overlooked and rushed. Having support from loved ones will yield the positive outcome. Family will not let each other down; they ought to be the first people turn to for help. We were all there at one point or another – needing help because we cannot do it alone. Let’s use this open opportunity!
