I get by with a little help from my friends

The Beatles wrote a wonderful song about the importance of friends, calling it “With a little help from my friends.”  The receiving of help from others is often frowned upon by the America ideals of independence and stoic individualism.  But “in this every changing world in which we live in,” we need to have help (I need somebody), and we are certainly dependent on others.

Recently the recipient of the 1-800wheelchair scholarship wrote a nice piece about having to cope with her physical disability.  She has learned to ask for a little help from her friends. http://www.1800wheelchair.com/pages/scholarship-winter-2009CS.aspx

Comment on this blog is you want to tell others about how asking for help opened the way for the start of a friendship, relationship or marriage.
