When You Can't Do It Yourself, Call for Reinforcements

Hello, Friends! We’ve definitely covered a lot over the past couple of months, haven’t we? We’ve dug into why New Year’s resolutions are stupid. We discovered the more practical way to make your goals manageable.  And in a perfect world, you would easily be able to break your goals into smaller bits, give yourself timelines to stay accountable, and have the self-discipline to get out of your divorce rut and move on. So, what happens when you cant do it yourself? Does that mean that you just throw your hands up in frustration, say, “Screw this,” and continue feeling sorry for yourself because everything is just too damn hard?

Hell no.


When you cant do it yourself, it’s time to call for reinforcements.

Nothing wrong with having a bad-ass group of folks to help you recover.

Asking for help doesn’t make you stupid or weak. It’s the exact opposite.

I get it. Most of us like to think of ourselves as independent individuals who can do things ourselves. And for many things in our life, that’s fine. If you can make a list, go to the grocery store, and shop for yourself, cool. If you can search for flights and hotels online and make travel reservations without the need for outside assistance, that’s cool, too. That’s not the shit we’re talking about.
