How do you step from the top of a 100-foot pole?
My first answer to this would be – you don’t. But if you find yourself on top of a 100-foot pole and you have no choice, you have to get down; well I would say that you would definitely need help. This is impossible to do on your own and so many people think that they can do everything themselves and that leads to their downfall. We so badly want the world and the people around us to see us as strong and able to stand on our own two feet, not needing anyone, but the truth is we cannot always only rely on ourselves. Humans were not created to be alone. We need to put our trust in others and ask for help when we need it. That is the only way we will “survive” in all aspects of our lives, that being in our love-life, work environment or just in everyday life. So if we find ourselves on top of a 100-foot pole and we need to get down, we should not be afraid to call for help and take the hand that is given to us. It is ok to sometimes need someone else and put your trust in someone else.
