I have seen so many people tell me about how the concept of self-help does not work and a person can’t really do much to change their own condition. I used to believe the same, but then I stopped because self-help does work, and I have seen the changes in myself, as well as people who have gone through the process as well.
If you are wondering what or changed my mind about self-help, it was Jay Depoy, and I am forever grateful for this. That is why I am writing an article about some of the things that you should consider when starting self-help. This is specifically for people who want to do it, but are shrouded in doubt; here is to hoping that these things help you as well.
Identifying The Problem
The first step of solving a problem is to acknowledging that there is one. If you are concerned about helping yourself as well, then you need to make sure that you acknowledge the problem before you do that. I am saying this because I have seen many people who just don’t acknowledge that there is something wrong and carry on the reckless path. Do not be that person because it won’t do you much good.
Seeking Help is Okay
Even if you are on the journey for self-help, you need to understand that it is okay if you want to seek help from someone else, or even a professional. There is only so much a person can do on their own, so the idea of bringing someone is works every time and it works well. A lot of people completely miss this point because they think they are alone in the self-help process, which is not true at all.
