We will all learn in the coming days, weeks and months that we all will need to ask for help. Just about everyone in this world will have to learn this. As a family we need to get out in front of our hesitation to ask for help. The sooner we ask the better. This is not an admission of weakness or of a failing. This is a reality. In the back of our minds we knew the world and our society could get messed up but really we did not think it would happen. Well it did and now we have a choice to meet it head on.
Waiting to ask for help just before you are about to go over the edge will make it more difficult for those who can help you to do just that. And sometimes we are just going to need help asking for help.
There is no shame saying you need help. This has always been important, now it is a critical life skill.
