"I just need to do everything by myself. I CAN do everything myself and I can do it BEST. Nobody else knows what I am thinking, nobody can design it or phrase it or edit things exactly as I want. Team work is not for me, it's all just a mess in the end and double the work. I love to be by myself anyway, who needs people... Community? Absolutely not for me."
Does this sound familiar?
Well, this and so many more things used to be my reality. However I am changing my mind. Why? Because I have seen the power of team work in action, because I have seen how community can help and change things, in a single person's life and the collective. I have seen great life shifts happen - first hand - to me, just because I asked for help, I reached out, I asked for assistance!!
I used to be the lone wolf type (I used to call it lonely wolf, which is kind of appropriate as well, don't you think?).
Don't you get lonely, don't you get tired of not being able to trust anyone to do things properly? Well, I did! I got tired of that lone wolf life...
I decided things are not working for me, not exactly going the way I wanted them to. I saw others being supported and reaching new heights - with the help of their community or a team or simply family that they would trust and allow them to help.
As reluctant as I was to the idea of leaving the lone wolf life behind I decided to give it a go. After all, what did I have to loose? Things could only get better.
And you know? I asked for help and it was given!! I feel so much more supported, I feel like I have a "community chair" to fall back on. Not only that, I am being cheered on along the way, I started acknowledging my progress and I am not so hard on myself for any failures (if there is such thing as failures).
Could this work for you? Why not try? If things are not working one way you have to look for other ways, other solutions!
Try allowing other people more into your life. Open up!
It doesn't mean you can't spend time by yourself. Of course you can, but it will be so much more satisfying! Speaking from my own experience here!
Give it a go, join a group, allow another to help and maybe by being helped or cheered on or celebrated you help others do the same! You might find that the very notion you resisted, meaning having people around you, supporting you, helping you, celebrating you - is the very thing you need!
Join any community, group, team, ask for help.
