Why don’t we ask for help when we know we need it? For me it’s pride. It’s the desire to make it on my own, and the fear of looking weak in front of others.
Who decided that making it alone was a sign of strength? I’ve seen people who are determined to do everything on their own…they don’t look very happy to me.
I don’t want to end up where my pride is trying take me.
Of course getting help is not weakness. I am much stronger with a support system behind me. Stronger than I would ever be standing by myself.
I need to remember that. That I’m stronger when I have help, and that it’s ok to ask for it.
That pride is a stupid reason to end up alone.
