It is okay to ask for help

Experiencing difficulties can happen at any stage in life. We may struggle as children, understanding school related tasks, finding it difficult to leave home and being separated from our parents/caregivers, making new friends and so on. We may struggle as adults, we may find it difficult to get used to being independent, to maintain existing friendships and make new ones, to enter into romantic relationships, to maintain boundaries, to deal with loss and so forth. We may struggle in different roles in our life: as a partner, as a parent, as a friend, as an individual. In fact, whatever role we are in at whatever stage in our life, we may struggle at times. What I would suggest to anyone and everyone is to remember that:

it is okay to ask for help!

It really is.
