I have heard that phrase many times too, but unfortunately it is not normally backed up. I think we do not accept help in part due to how we might be viewed by others. We don’t want to seem weak. Also, I think it has a lot to do with society. We don’t live in solicit help society really. Other countries seem to really exercise the idea that “it takes a village”. We seem to put too much pressure on ourselves, even outside of being military spouses…as mothers too! Thanks for sharing your insight!

Wow! Your post hit home. I think I struggled with asking for help because I felt like people expected me to fail. I felt (and it probably wasn’t true) that they thought I wasn’t strong enough. Asking for help felt like admitting that was true. We have to learn to tell ourselves that we have nothing to prove. We do the best we can. Part of that is knowing when we need to ask for help.

I pretty much never asked for help before, and becoming an Army wife just made that so much harder! AH!
It is like we have this need to be strong no matter what the circumstance. I do believe that is why we try to do things completely on our own! Great post and so true!
