I cannot count the number of times someone has told me, "Oh Wendy you can handle it, you're the strongest woman I know." While I have been through some tough situations in my lifetime; I am only human and sometimes, I just want someone to listen to me, a shoulder to cry on, or someone else to take care of things.
Know that it's ok to ask for help; it's ok to cry a while; it's ok to lay in bed for the day; it's ok to not be able to fix it all; it's ok to let someone take care of you for a change. That doesn't mean your weak; it only means you are in touch with your true feelings, wants, and needs; and in all honesty, it takes a really strong person to admit their weaknesses.
