Every man,woman, and child requires help at some point; this does not make one weak. Rather it is admission a being a human being; we all have frailties . Whether it as inconsequential as requiring assistance at the gym, a dress zipped, or a shoe tied or as monumental as seeking the assistance of a professional or peer; this is not shameful. It absolutely does not speak on inneptitude, but lends credence to one’s acceptance of the human condition. Often, we place limits on ourselves and deny that which is readily at hand. We make think ourselves independent; it could be argued that this does not exist in and of itself.
No man (or woman) is an island, although society would teach us independence is fundamental. Persons of great mental and physical strength require assistance. The master was once a student; as long as we are human, we will need assistance in one area or another.
