There is no shame in asking for what we need from others or from our circumstances, especially if to not ask is to fail.
We cannot allow our pride or our fear to impede our progress, to hinder our growth, or to prevent us from succeeding.
We have to be careful not to tell ourselves that to have needs is to be needy, weak, or incomplete.
Sometimes, admitting that we have needs, that we need something from someone, or that we need someone, is the only way to find our strength.
Sometimes, admitting that we need help, support, or comfort is actually strength.
