We all want to do it alone sometimes, especially when it’s hard to ask for help, hard to get along with the team you’re assigned, or just don’t want to be with someone else, or with a crowd. There is a reason, though, why it was said that no man is an island.
Because it is harder when you have to do it alone. It is daunting when all has to be done you and you alone. When no one has your back and the whole weight of your world lies with you, and there is no help in sight.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to do it alone, because alone does not work. Alone may sound good at the moment. May sound promising when a whole team, or someone you depend on has let you down. But this isn’t the way to go. Forgiveness exists for this reason, to let go of the disappointing past and forge a way forward, if not with the same people or person, but with help alongside the way.
It is OK to ask for help. From someone who you can trust, from someone who you can rely on. If all else fails, ask me.
Alone, just doesn’t work.
