Accept help when it is offered to you and actively seek it if you are struggling
Many of us believe that we can cope on our own, we only have to pull ourselves together or concentrate. This is a false belief. We all need support at times in our lives.
Whether you are struggling with work related issues, depression, marital problems, or other personal problems. There are people out there who can help. Of course, there are professional therapists, but have you considered your friends or family. Maybe just talking to one of the family and sharing your struggle will help you to see things differently. Or you could consider setting up a support group with some of your more positive friends, enabling you to support each other on a regular basis. Alternatively you could contact a counsellor to help with personal problems or a Coach who could support and guide you with work related matters.
