Lesson #18: Ask.


Put aside your pride.

Ask for help.

If you need help,


If you don’t need help,

or don’t think you need help,

you should really ask.

Because that’s usually when you could use it the most, and you don’t even realize it.

Or you don’t want to realize it.

We have been taught that being independent is a desirable trait, and a sign of strength.

But what’s even more desirable is the ability to be strong enough to ask for a hand. The recognition that you can’t carry the weight of the world. The courage to put your faith and trust in another’s hands. Someone or something other than yourself.

That’s not weak.

That’s strong. That’s brave.

That’s desirable.

Somebody out there wants to help.

They want to see you succeed. They want to see you do your best. Be your best.

And they might know a thing or two that you don’t. They might see it from a different angle. They might have better tools. Better ideas. Better resources. More love. More support. More to offer.

It’s okay to not have it all.

It’s okay not to know it all.

It’s okay not to be it all.

It’s okay not to be okay.

You don’t have to do this alone.
