Search for the support
By Keren Liew | Published on May 24, 2022
There will be times when we get overwhelmed, or feel like we are under a lot of stress. Other than taking some time to process our thoughts and feelings, we might have to search for the support which could help us get through when we are not able to do those on our own. Trying to get help from others might not have been an easy thing to do for us due to certain issues or personal factors. Some of us might not want to feel like we are troubling others; some of us might think that we could manage everything and do not favour others to think otherwise; some of us might not even be aware and recognise that we need the support from people around us to help us.
Did it come across to you that we, as human beings, are actually social animals? It means that we actually rely on cooperation amongst us to survive and help achieve what we want. It is a fact that we need each other to live, and we must help each other out. It is important to have at least a few individuals as our core support in our life, where we would be able to look for them when things go down, to calm ourselves down. They might not be able to solve every problem that we have, give us everything we want or grant every wish we have, but we need the sense of belonging and connection with our support to get us through life, especially when things get rough and in the times of need. Be it a company or other forms of support, people around us work wonders to get us out of the pit of misery, as long as we grant them the permission, have faith in them and trust the process.
