If you are anything like me you are prideful and always believe that you can handle whatever you may have to face each day. When you have questions or challenging circumstances you do your best to handle it on your own. Sometimes we are so prideful that we avoid at all costs looking for help from others. This is often to the detriment of our own progress!
We will all face challenges that may or may not be too much for one person to handle. There will also definitely be a time that you don’t know something. It isn’t a sign of weakness to admit that you don’t know or that you can’t do something alone. In fact, I believe that it takes more courage to admit you need help. Why struggle alone?
“Why waste time, resources and emotional energy on something that others have already been through?”
There isn’t some badge that you get for struggling through until you figure it out. We live in varying degrees of community that offer many benefits. One of the greatest benefits is that we can call upon the experience of others. So why waste time, resources and emotional energy on something that others have already been through? The more you ask for help and help others the broader your own wealth of knowledge will be. Also, the network of assistance you can call upon for the future will be that much deeper. Not only that in my experience people want to help. We all have a sense of accomplishment after assisting others. We all know what it’s like to need help and we don’t want others to feel that way.
