I’ll admit it, I struggle with asking for help and even accepting help when its being offered. Call it pride or call it ignorance, either way help is very powerful and nobody should turn down or be afraid to ask for.
But to depend or rely on help will send you towards a path of dependence and failure. However, to accept and embrace help will allow you to grow and eventually help others including those who first helped you. I have had a very up and down last couple of years and I know there would be a ton of more downs if I didn’t let others around me lend a hand.
Being out on the road I have seen the kindness in people that I always thought wasn’t there unless they wanted something for it. Most of these people understand how powerful their helpful hand can be and just want to help.
A helpful hand can pick someone up from the ground or stop them from falling. A helpful hand can pat you on the back and let you know that you have done well. A helpful hand isn’t always friendly and sometimes it has to slap some sense in you to really be helpful. A helpful hand can point you in the right direction and then salute you when you go for it and accomplish your goals.
To all those helpful hands I have come across so far on my journey…Thank You So Much and I am so glad I let you lend me a hand.
