Each of us holds a piece of the much larger puzzle. There are so many different types of wisdom and intelligence. Related to this, acknowledging that someone else may have much to teach us does not mean that we’re less smart or capable overall than they are. And vice-versa. If we equate the two, it can make learning or asking for help more difficult. This is especially true if we happen to have overachiever or perfectionism tendencies. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m still working on this.
