Who ever said we’re destined to take this journey called life by ourselves? Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Anyone who has had any form of success in their lifetime knows this as well; “we all stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.”

So, why do we feel so isolated sometimes when times are tough? Do we truly believe we are the only person who has struggled with the particular problem you’re facing ? I doubt it.

When I was young and not quite as smart, I tried moving mountains by myself. It took me some time to realize there was no way I was going to succeed. We need support from our closest friends/family and empathetic ears who will listen. We require a trustworthy group to give us backup.

We’re not alone. Everyone has their challenges as they travel their road. Find those gems in the rough who are willing to help – who want to help. They’re out there. And they want to give you their time and attention. Why?

Because more than likely, someone helped them along the way.
