Sure others can help and many are more than willing to help. In fact, often we are over-bearing in our eagerness to helps others.
However, we have to help ourselves, as by taking responsibility and ownership enables to us change. Only we can change ourselves, however, only when we are ready to open up to that change. It has to come from inside our soul. We have to listen to our own wisdom and intuition.
If we are engaged with the mind and the helpful minds of others, which are laced with ours and their egos, then we will suppress and override our own deep inner feelings and the real us will not blossom.
Sure people can help but it is us that can help ourselves from within our soul.
