In a society where independence is valued and celebrated, it’s extremely difficult to admit you need help or to be vulnerable. But we were all built for relationship and community. In order to grow and make our lives better and more fulfilling, we need other people. Safe people, who are individuals that we trust, should be part of that group. Don’t try and do everything on your own. Reach out for help when you need it.

Prescription: Reject the idea you have to do everything on your own and embrace help from your friends in order to grow.
