Have you ever faced a difficult situation when you had to choose between sorting it out yourself, or asking someone else for an easy fix? What did you choose — and would you make the same choice today?
I like to think that I can handle things myself. I’m a little too proud sometimes. It gets me stuck more often than not. I’m not afraid to ask for help, I just like to at least give things a whirl or two first.
A couple of years ago, I was in an accident with a big ol’ deer in the middle of the highway. I called around to see if anyone was awake. 3 am? Not really a chance. I got everything taken care of and was on my way home with a banged up car. I humored the idea of asking for help on repairs, but I figured…with enough time and a little bit of effort in being wise with what little money I had, I could get it taken care of before too long. I got it as fixed up as I could with a little handy work from a family member. I would do it again if it happened. It wasn’t an impossible situation even when it felt like one.
