“Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2, NIV

“If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” Many women, especially single moms have become so used to doing it all and doing it all on their own, that they don’t even consider asking for help. You may not be a single mom, but can you relate?

Many of us are independent, and not always because we have to be. Here’s the thing – we were designed to need each other.

Dr. Art Markman is a professor of Cognitive Science and Psychology at the University of Texas in Austin. In his book Smart Thinking, he wrote “It is not always easy to see the hidden assumptions that you are making when solving difficult problems. For this reason, it is helpful to engage other people to help you during problem-solving… to help you evaluate it.”

And here we go with science stating what God already told us. “Two are better than one.” (Ecclesiastes 4:19, ESV)

Have you ever tried to pull out onto a busy road and asked your passenger, “Anything coming from your side?”

There are moments in our lives when we need someone looking out for our blind spot. Sometimes, from where we’re sitting, we just can’t see everything. Our emotions or experiences may obstruct our view.

That’s when we need to have another superhero positioned to warn us of potential dangers.

With a trusted friend or leader by our side, not only are we safer and more secure, but life is more satisfying. We were created for connection. The “S” on Supergirl’s chest does not stand for Super. It signifies that we are “Stronger Together.”

Don’t do life alone!
