Sometimes being self-sufficient can be a bullshit trait to have

Yup. I have definitely learned this within the last few years. I have used self-sufficiency as a coping mechanism, and let me say this: it takes on a major toll, emotionally and physically.

You cannot do everything yourself. As attractive as it sounds to be someone who can support herself with by any means possible, it leads to more stress and confusion.

And no one wants that shit in their life.

It doesn’t hurt to ask for help (and maybe put a call out there to the police on your personal pity rager, because it’s getting a little
loud).

Asking for and receiving help releases much of the depression and isolation that you feel when you’re tackling everything on your own.

It is completely okay, to not have a handle on everything.
