We need each other.
No amount of money, influence, resources, or determination.
Will change our physical, emotional, and spiritual dependence on others.
- Not at the beginning of our lives.
- Not in the messy middle.
- Not at the end.
Generosity and giving are not the opposite of receiving.
- To judge yourself for needing help. You judge those you are helping.
- To attach value to giving help. You attach value to needing help.
- The danger of tying your self-worth to being a helper. Is feeling shame when you have to ask.
Offering help is courageous and compassionate.
But so is asking for help.
