No shame in acknowledging weakness and seeking support
I appreciate folk who bravely share aspects of their lives that society tells us to look on with shame - hard working people who are homeless or don't have enough to eat, folk dealing w/physical or mental health issues, folk dealing with addictions, folks whose kids have problems at school. We are all just doing the best we can, and we do better with support. When you step up, share, and seek support, you get out of the hole faster and as a bonus give permission for the rest of us to be honest and seek the help we need. The apparently weakest are often actually the strongest.
