One of our clients shared this insight, as told to her by Cantor Maurice Falkow from Congregation Anshei Israel, now deceased.
Many people had asked Cantor Falkow about the secret to life. He always replied that there really isn’t one, but if there was one, it is to know when to ask for help. Life can be tough. We all face adversity. The key is to know when you can’t do it on your own, and to ask for help when you need it.
How many significant consequences and tragic events could be avoided if more people were willing to seek help?
Some are taught to believe that asking for help makes you weak. In reality, the opposite is true. Knowing when to ask for help makes you a strong person.
