A Thought on Self Help
Life in an increasingly VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world has brought about an unprecedented pressure on the concept of self. We are increasingly uncertain of who we are, what we stand for and how to live our lives.
Unfortunately, some gave up the notion of living as whole beings, content to live broken, fragmented lives, changing their beliefs and values with every situation. While others dive into the sea of “self-help”, seeking for a glimmer of sanity which could be their anchor in the storm of life.
So what then?
I asked the librarian, “where’s the self help section?” She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.
Sometimes we demand too much of ourselves to make sense of this chaos around us, where in reality, we just need someone (in this case, the librarian) to point us in the right direction.
Let your self help include asking others to help.
