Leaning on people is something that at times can be extremely difficult. Personally I’ve struggled with it a lot. I’m a very independent person to the point where I would rather struggle alone than ask for help.
I had to learn that eventually you’ll have to ask for help, and if you wait to long you won’t have a choice in the matter.
Allowing someone to help you shows not only humility but a sort of strength. Strength of character and expresses how comfortable you are in who you are. It’s a social skill that is frowned upon in today’s society. We are taught that asking is weakness but it’s not.
If you ask for help you are allowing a dialogue to be opened between you and another person, a bond of trust created by letting yourself become vulnerable, and I know that’s scary but it’s essential to our growth as a people.
