If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place or hanging off a cliff, what would you do? Scream for help or pretend you don’t need it with a dash of bravado?
The answer seems obvious. Our reaction, as well, would be obvious.
Why, then, do we bother with the bravado in our normal lives? We are often between a rock and a hard place at work, in our relationships, with our finances etc. Why, then, do we not scream for help and get help?
Ditch the bravado. Ask for help. Learn. Move on. It’s okay to be in a bad place.
