When help needs to be accepted for being received
Have you ever run into someone, offering your help, and that person refused it almost offended by your offer. Let’s think about this. We grew up in this model where independence was one of the most important value. Too often, freedom is confused with independence. Being able to be free and totally independent is something few humans realized. People you thought having it was usually surrounded by people helping them achieve it.
Society of today is one of the best examples of what Adam Smith explained in his book The Wealth of Nations. This concept where everyone takes care of a small piece of a whole works better than trying to achieve a whole by yourself. Surprisingly we are not educated this way. We tend to teach young people to be able to do things on their own. This may lead to a false impression of Independence to the cost off quality.
Think about it, do you think that you could find a smartphone build by a single person. Why is there no such device available on the market? Why don’t you build one for yourself, even a single prototype for yourself? Just fulfilling your need to have this kind of technology for yourself. It just doesn’t make any sense to go learn every piece of knowledge required by such a project.
