Get Help

One of the most humbling experiences is being caught in a situation that requires asking for help for at first it feels foreign and slightly shameful to ask for help because we think, “I should be able to do this myself.”  Then when a friend offers to help, to listen or to do a favor, the weight lifted is so immeasurable and the relief so true and genuine, that it makes asking for help in the future a little bit easier.  By asking for help the giver gets to feel needed and important and the receiver feels connected to another human being.  Just knowing that someone out there cares, is sometimes the boost one needs to move forward.
