It is good to know when you need help or can go it on your own. It is good to know where and how to seek competent help. I am talking about physical, emotional, or practical help. Finding someone you can really trust is so important; my intuition often tells me who that person is, but sometimes my intuition fails me. Of course, it is also very important to go it on your own when you can. Self-reliance, self respect–they go together. But if anyone thinks they can go it alone completely in this complex and sometimes nefarious culture and world, well, I submit that they are wrong.
