Being helpable

All right, I made up that word: helpable. It means being able to be helped.

For a long time, independence was touted as the most desirable way to get on with life. Independence is good. Learning to overcome limitations and take care of ourselves is admirable. I have no qualm with that.

This morning I read a wonderful article called “The 6 People You Need in Your Corner” by Jessica Hagy, which opens up the wonderful idea of having others help you. I like it. I’m working on doing what she says. I hope you enjoy reading it, too.

Here’s to independence united with trusting people enough to have them give you assistance, and to being one of those six people for others who need your talents.

How are you working with other people, receiving their help, and offering yours?

Until next time,
