Asking for help is not easy. Our culture places enormous pressures on us to perform at peak levels most of the time. We are expected to be able to solve our problems ourselves. Self-reliance is a fine concept, but sometimes we need another perspective on our problems. Some problems, like addiction, are bigger than us. We need to look outside ourselves for the solution.
Asking for help is not easy. But it can be a bridge to a different way of living.
