At times we must swallow our pride
Seek out from others what we do not have
Keeping in mind that we don’t have to do it alone
Friends and family are all around
Only waiting for their hand to be taken
Reaching back and reaching out at the same time
How often have you thought, “I don’t need anyone else?”
Even as the water flows over your head and covers your mouth?
Let them in, let them help, let them be there for you and yours
Please remember that it heals wounds in them that you cannot see.
Sometimes being humble means:
-taking lessons from others you believe are less than yourself
-accepting the consequences of your actions
And sometimes, sometimes being humble means letting another serve and help you even though you want to stand on your own feet. There is no dishonor in accepting aid when it is needed and offered and given.
