"But pride's gonna be the death of you and you and me."

-Kendrick Lamar



My pride can get in the way of things at times when it comes to asking for help. Has this ever happened to you? Well, if it has here is a newsflash! You, we...I DO NOT know it all and CAN NOT do it all alone. If you did, who taught you? I had a hard time understanding this because I always wanted to show everyone around me that I was self sufficient. This, was not realistic and often times foolish of me to think. I had to break it down to understand. Just think, for every student there was a teacher. For every child there was a mother or parent figure.

Lean On Me

Now, I find comfort in my shortcomings. I'm okay with needing help at times and understanding that I don't know it all. Knowing that I have a great support system in my family, my sisters, my friends...and my life. Until next time...
