Swallowing....... pride.

Sometimes no matter how great we may think that we are, we all need a little assistance from time to time. Sometimes you give everything you've got until you've got nothing left, when you are running on empty and your back is against the wall. Then, out of no where, comes this object that appears to be a bright light at the end of a long, monotonus tunnel, which turns out to be a helping hand. The most stubborn of us, which include myself, are more than reluctant to extend our own hand for a little bit of assistance. We don't want to admit that we couldn't do what we set out to do on our own. We don't want to come to terms with the fact that we just couldn't do it alone. We don't want to stare the facts in the eyes and realize that as far as we've come and as hard as we've tried and no matter how much fire, spirit, and heart we put into it we just couldn't succeed, with out of course someone there to offer thier support. Support that you realize you need yet still fear the acceptance of being aided due to the fact that you couldn't do it on your own. It can be a blow to your self-esteem and a shot to your ego.

But in accepting the hand of another in time of need is not a thing to be ashamed of. All of us have to do it from time to time. It makes us realize that we're not human and that we are not invincible, as much as we all wish that we were. It makes us feel humble, by swallowing our pride and picking up the pieces and realize that the hands that help us are trying to help us get to that next point in our lives, by giving us a little bit of help because more than likely those who are more willing to help have been in compromising situations before, and they realize that it's not always peaches and cream in the real world for I've come to believe that it's more like brustlesprouts and low-fat cottage cheese.
