You don’t know how strong you really are until you are faced with a problem you can’t handle on your own. Be it about mental health, money, a ride to work, a shoulder to cry on, or just about anything else. Perhaps you can stall it and hope for the best, but you can’t actually make it better or right without help.
It is whether or not you have the bravery to swallow your pride and ask for that help that determines your strength.
If you need help, ask for it.
In return if you’re asked to help, do it graciously and genuinely.
There is no shame in being human.
