We All Could Use a Little Help
It's funny how throughout our lives we insist on being self sufficient. Ten years of babysitting, five years of teaching, and nine years with four children of my own later, and the verdict is in. We are ultimately wired for independence, self sufficiency, and doing our own thing. Which makes sense, because if we weren't we never would have survived this long as a species.
But what we have to consider, is also the fact that while we may crave autonomy and carry our "I can do it myself" attitude, or forage through life with the belief that "if you want it done right, you better do it yourself", we would never have gotten to where we are as a society if we weren't a community based populace.
Life would be so much easier if we just asked for a little help every once in a while. You'll find a smile on your face more often if you do. You'll find you're more willing to give a helping hand yourself. You'll even gain close and dear friends along the way. There's always someone out there who'd love to lend a hand.
Why? Because we could all use a little help. It's just the way it is. The videos below are just two small examples.
