Asking for help is hard as it requires us to admit that we can’t do something on our own. Whether it’s learning a complicated idea or moving out of our apartment, there are some things in life that we simply can’t tackle by ourselves. We wish we were strong enough and smart enough to power through every dilemma the world throws our way, but that’ll never be the case.
Recently, EMTs helped an 86-year-old California man who passed out while mowing his lawn. The man, who asked to remain nameless, had refused to ask his family or neighbors for help with chores. He probably spent the majority of his life doing chores around the house and taking care of his own front lawn.
Unfortunately, we all reach an age when these activities are undoable, especially in the California heat. When the EMT’s came to this man’s rescue, one of them stayed behind to finish mowing his lawn. The old man couldn’t ask for help, but this selfless EMT knew that it’s what he would have wanted. Hopefully, the man makes a speedy recovery and can return home to his newly-cut grass soon!
