Is Asking for Help a Weakness?

After a very busy and hectic week wearing my accountant hat, I went to a local wine dinner, met some new people and had interesting conversations. The topic of Anthony Bourdain arose. I'm not one to stay up to date with the news but I had heard about his suicide and the suicides of other people in the limelight. For me it brings to light the danger inherent in living in false personas. How often do we get caught up in our illusions of who we need to be that we deny who we are and what we need.
