We all have someone in life that we’ve turned to for assistance in our time of need but some of us lose sight of what we give up when we depend on others too much. Freedom, independence, esteem and pride are sacrificed when we rely on another to do things that we should accomplish on our own. You begin to believe you can’t make it without that help and you lean harder on your source for survival. You depend on them so much that eventually you can’t stand on your own. Don’t lean on that crutch too hard because eventually it will break leaving on the ground with no way to get up. Sometimes you have to summon and draw upon your own strength; believing that you can do is the first step towards doing. Don’t cripple yourself, by not doing for yourself.
