If it feels like you are carrying
The heavy load all by yourself,
Don't hesitate to ask
For someone to help you carry it.

You don't have to carry your load alone.

If it feels like
You aren't getting anywhere,
Don't hesitate to ask
For directions.

You don't have to figure things out all by yourself.

If it feels like
All the world is raining down on you,
Don't hesitate to come
Under someone else's umbrella.

If you stumble and fall
Along your way,
Don't be afraid to reach out
To that helping hand.

Remember, people are there for you.

No matter what happens,
Keep pushing forward.

And you are not less of a person
If you have to rely on the
Assistance of those around you.

Even Superman needs help from Lois.
Even Spider-Man needs advice from Aunt May.
Even Batman needs consolation from Alfred.

And superheroes work best
When they work together.

You can do this, my superhero.

    Love this Alex! Awesome, yes. It does not make us less of a person when we show we are weak, but I think we grow strong because we are able to admit those weaknesses and overcome them with help from family and friends.
