We have all been there, it feels like a big step and you might be feel a bit awkward, reluctant, worried, scared, afraid, or not really sure about reaching out for help. Get this though, that first step is the hard part, everything after that becomes a bit easier.
We all need some help and support at some point in our lives. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Reaching out for help and support will help you move on from where you are right now.
