You need a team on your side

In order to continuously learn, you need help. We've got this "do-it-yourself, I-don't-need-anyone" idea in America, like it's somehow cooler, tougher, smarter, or better to do things on your own (and only for yourself).
But doing it all by yourself is not only unnecessary but impossible. You can't do it on your own. So how do you get the help you need?
Everyone needs someone they can confide in, someone they can talk to about whatever mountains they happen to be facing at the time. "Someone you can talk to" might mean a professional counselor, but not necessarily. It might be an uncle, a grandparent, a teacher, a school counselor, or a coach.
