“… there are two entirely opposite attitudes possible in facing the problems of one’s life. One, to try and change the external world, the other, to try and change oneself.”
~ Joanna Field ~
“When I used to drink I would avoid (or try to avoid) problems in my life. If I ignored them, they wouldn’t exist. ‘Wrong!’ The problems only multiplied. Or, better yet… The Blame Game. During recovery from alcohol and learning of my mental illness, did I not realize how ridiculous my thought processing was. Now, (Luckily), I face my problems head on regardless of what the outcome may be. Since I changed the way I look at my problems, things run a little bit smoother than they used to. And, if I’m not sure how to go about figuring out how to solve my problems, I ask for help and guidance.”

Question: When you are faced with a problem that seems impossible to figure out on your own, are you afraid to ask for assistance? If so, why?
