With a Little Help...

What's your greatest weakness? That's one question that I like asking when doing interviews. For me, being able to comfortably talk about your weakness is already a sign of strength; something that you would want a person to have. If you are aware of your weakness, then you are not a slave to it. You can do something about it.

Not that I am comfortable talking about my weaknesses. In fact, I probably would not - even in my wildest of dreams - like talking about these things. Tonight, though, I was reminded of one of my main flaws: being a loner, shying away from company especially when something is bothering me. Heck, I have been known to push friends away when they try to reach out and help.

This is really making me feel uncomfortable and I do not know how to express my thoughts accurately. One song keeps playing in my head, though:

I get by with a little help from my friends,
I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends
I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends.

Yep, sometimes, one or two real friends can make all the difference.

Going back to the song, it's written and originally performed by the Beatles but I really like Joe Cocker's version. Here's a live performance for your viewing and listening pleasure. :)
