“Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence.”

– Anne Silson Schaef

If experience has taught me anything — and indeed, it’s taught me much — it’s that there is much wisdom in setting aside pride and that false, unhealthy “Lone Ranger” or ‘Island of Self Suffiency” conditioning and asking for help on those days when it’s the best medicine.

On other days, it’s humbling and rewarding to extend that support, encouragement, inspiration, and ‘believing mirror‘ when someone has enough courage and wisdom to ask us.

And thus the circle is complete.
