Asking for help is a sign of strength. It is not, nor will it ever be, an admission of weakness.
It takes courage. It takes humility. It takes a certain amount of getting over yourself, and as such, it is to be admired.
What’s weak, on the other hand – not to mention tragic – is having such a fragile ego that you insist on carrying the world on your own shoulders, because you just can’t bear to share the credit. You would rather be miserable alone than happy together.
We are here for each other. No exceptions. If you need help, ask for help. You’ll be surprised how often and how willingly it is given if you will simply open your mouth.
“Revere the gods, and look after each other. Life is short—the fruit of this life is a good character and acts for the common good.”Marcus Aurelius – “Meditations” Book 6
