In my notebook I saw this phrase “ask because you need not go it alone”. I wish I could say that I follow this advice, but it’s really hard for me to ask for help. I’m such a lone wolf so used to licking my own wounds. There’s a lot of pride involved there and distrust of other people. Or maybe I don’t trust myself. I don’t trust myself to be valuable enough that people won’t leave me if they find out that I am broken.
But I have to learn. I have to ask. I have to reach out. I don’t have all the answers, and I can’t Hermione Granger the complexities of life. People are repositories of experience, knowledge, and insight, and I lose out if I don’t let them read me. But how do I start? How do I trust?
