“No one can live his life solely for himself. Thousands of strings tie us to our brothers: intertwined in these strings, such as feelings of compassion, our actions are transmuted into causes and return to us as effects.”
- Herman Melville.
I can accept the help and emotional support of others. I cannot reach my goals without the help and emotional support of others. It may be true that negative experiences have led me to believe that help and emotional support are signs of weakness and inevitably lead to betrayal and exploitation. In reality though, there are individuals who are worthy of my trust and whose support I am willing to accept. I am open to the help offered to me by others, just as I am open to offering others my help and my emotional support.
