Happiness and the Forest

“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to
come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

-Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne

There are moments in life when we struggle (emotionally, physically, financially, or mentally) and oftentimes wait for others to provide support. We wait, wait some more, and maybe wait some more. Disappointment comes quickly when those individuals do not arrive at our doorstep. This quote reminds me of the personal responsibility we have to get our needs met. Friends and family do not know to offer support when we have not shared our struggles or requested help.
