I consider myself to be a strong person. To this day, I have survived every challenge in my path and am doing my best every day to make the most of every day of my life.
However, I am also a human being and I have times of insecurity, and I just need someone to hold my hand and tell me not to worry because everything will be fine.
While a lot of people see this as a downside, I don’t feel weaker or less able to do things by what I need support at times. In fact, I’m happy to know I have some sensitivity because I appreciate a hug or a friendly shoulder when life seems more difficult.
A hug just a word of comfort from someone we love and respect may be enough to give us hope and motivation, but a lot of people seem to have forgotten that we need each other. Our world is more and more individualistic and we feel more and more alone.
We let our ego and pride convince us that we are self-sufficient and that we don’t need anyone to be successful in life. We believe that to be strong and mature, we must be immunized against all kinds of pain and suffering and that distances us from reality.
Truly strong people are those who allow themselves to be weak when it is necessary, because they understand that it is in times of surrender that we often find the answers we need to evolve.
There are times when negative thoughts seem to invade our minds and we are completely paralyzed, not knowing how to deal with this mixture of sadness, uncertainty, and chaos. When this happens, it is essential that close people help us take the necessary actions that will keep us moving forward.
Even though we don’t like to admit it, at one time or another, we all need someone to give us back confidence, care, and love. In some situations, the only thing that seems reassuring is to share the difficulties and reduce the weight on our shoulders with a friend or loved one.
Allow yourself to get help, to let someone reassure you and tell you that you’ll be okay. Let someone tell you that things are passing and that only what is essential to your happiness is left. That you are not alone. To accept help is to practice humility and to illuminate your own path with the light of the other.
