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.
We build a life through our own imagined self-image and imprison ourselves in it. We stay stuck in jobs, with friends, with partners and so on, fearing to break free, fearing to upset, fearing to be our true selves. We go against our true self, we resist it, we allow ourselves to be trapped in our self-created imaginary life.
We become attached to things and people, and even when we instinctively want to do something or get rid of something, we stay trapped in the attachment we have built. We do not accept that every form is temporary and we are flowing on a journey. Not everything has to be there forever, we can move on from things, people, jobs and so on.
Freedom is being truly ourselves and not being attached or dependent on things or others.
