HEY, YOU! I think you’ve made your way here because you’re trying to sort through some of the things you can’t figure out on your own.

Plot twist, it’s OK, you’re not supposed to! We’ve gotten so accustomed to being independent and self-sufficient that we’ve forgotten that we were built for connection.

No one needs to go through this life journey alone or carry on and power through the struggles.

Somehow, being vulnerablehuman, and asking for help got defined as weakness and something to be avoided at all costs.

Well, I’m setting the record straight…asking for help is one of the most courageous things we can do. It takes a lot of strength to work through the stuff that is weighing us down.
