Series: Once Upon A Time
Episode: “Rocky Road“
One of our favorite things about Once Upon A Time is the fact that it shuns the conception that needing help is a sign of weakness. Snow could’ve taken on the entire kingdom by herself, but she needed Charming to remind her of her worth. Anna’s capable of returning safe from the Enchanted Forest, but she needed someone to not only believe in her strengths but to be there for Elsa just as she would, thus she needed Kristoff’s support. Although Emma’s capable of “sheriff-ing” on her own, there’s nothing wrong with her father being there with her. There’s nothing wrong with Killian wanting to help her because everyone deserves the kind of partner that’ll reassure and encourage them when it all becomes too much.
At the end of the day, true strength comes from being willing to accept everything and that includes knowing that it’s okay not to take care of it all on your own. Don’t be ashamed of needing help.
