Like my previous post, this is another one of those cautions we heard in our younger years. This one though, implies that somehow we are safer when we connect with others. What’s behind the idea is simple: Two heads, or maybe two sets of eyes and ears, are better than one.
When undertaking a potentially hazardous task, if we take the time to get another set of eyes to take a look, we might find a way to do it just a bit safer. We have lots on our minds; family demands, deadlines, difficult challenges at work, our health, our futures. It’s just too easy to let all of this fill our consciousness. If we get someone to look at the situation, we are asking them to focus with us, just for a minute, and improving the likelihood of a safe outcome.
Never be afraid to ask for help when safety is concerned, it could save you a serious loss. Not to mention that holding hands once in a while, with the right person, can raise the endorphin level.
Thanks, and let’s be careful out there.
