Many times we take pride in being self-sufficient, and refuse to accept help from others. Each of us should realize that there will be times in our lives when others may provide the assistance necessary to overcome an obstacle. In those instances, we should accept help.
Stop to think when you helped someone in need. Maybe someone needed financial assistance or they found themselves in a depressed state. Did you hesitate in helping them? I am sure that you have done whatever it took to convince them to accept your help. Just as you are willing to help others, you should be willing to receive help.
Sometimes all you may need is a push in the right direction. There will be times when a solution to a problem is not obvious. It is those times when someone may assist you in seeing the obvious. Swallow your pride and accept their help.
