It takes true grit to seek counseling and
advice, to let a friend help you out. I had
the damndest time doing this because my
pride wanted to be the One who always
helped others (not the other way around).
I now see: that was egotistical of me.
“The greatest thing is, at any moment,
to be willing to give up who we are in
order to become all that we can be.”
