Life is a journey that we are not meant to do alone.
Sure we all like our freedoms and independence. We do not like being told what to do, we like to make our own decisions.
However, we are much more successful if we collaborate and work with others.
In order to do that, we have to learn to accept help from others and this is where most of us struggle, as we are taught to see asking for help as a weakness, instead of a strength.
In order to be good at helping others, we need to learn to accept help too.
Being tough is, in fact, the opposite and letting our shields down and being open to receiving help is being brave.
Rowing your own boat is hard work, lonely and it will take you a lot longer to reach your destination.
