Help, its a funny word. A word that growing up, I was not familiar with. Actually in most cases it often scared me. I spent my childhood being independent. My life consisted of trying to figure out everything on my own. I don't know exactly what led me to be this way, but it was something I had to let go of as I became a young adult.
A few months ago, I realized that its okay to ask for help. I had never put much thought into the word as a kid. I knew that I liked to help others but when it came to me...well I didn't know what getting help was. Being 18 is HARD...it is one of those things that when growing up you think that it will be a prime time, everything will come easy, natural. With a month left of being 18 I can say that there was no part that was easy. There were parts that were filled with fun, love, and adventure, but getting through the rest was HARD. Thats were the help had to come in.
Asking for help was something I needed to learn through this past year. I had to reach out to my friends and family when my daily activities were becoming a struggle. Things that became to overwhelming, school, work, and preparing to move across the country in 7 months, all of this I need help. My friends and family are there. They are there to help me when
I need it most. Being a child I didn't think I would need help, I carried the mindset that I could do everything myself. I could conquer the world by myself. At the end of the day that is just not the reality of it. We may be brought into this earth alone and we may die alone, but alone the way we need help. We need help from others to become what we strive for. Throughout our lives it is important to ask for help. Its okay to ask for help. Its okay to receive help.
This is not a sign of weakness this is a sign of power. People who have your best interest in mind can help you more than you will ever know. They can help you become exactly the person that you want to be. This is what I have learned. I have learned so much from receiving help from others. I still have much to learn about help but in the meantime I am going to keep asking for it. I am going to keep striving for my goals and being the best person that I can possibly be through HELP.
I don't exactly know what I want to do with my future as I have mentioned before, but I know I want to help the world. I want to change our society so it can be better. Our world is polluted with hatred and evil, as it seems. I want to help where help is needed. I want to help our society grow as much as I can in my life. I am going to school to learn how to do that. I am learning more about the world I live in and how exactly I can help it.
Along my journey, I am not only going to ask for help when it is needed, but I am going help when I see others in need. I believe we live in a society where people don't always reach out to others. It easier for people to turn a blind eye and carry on with our busy lives. After realizing how important help is, why wouldn't I reach out to anyone that needs it. People need help! so why aren't we helping them. Thats why I am asking all of you who are reading this for help. I am asking you to reach out to anyone that needs it. Reach out to help the world. From this we can achieve anything as a society.
