Linguistics

There’s a difference between “stupid” and “helpless”, because while he can acknowledge he doesn’t know anything it doesn’t mean he can’t do anything for himself. It just means he needs outside help, and so he learns how to ask for it.

He learns, and listens, and practices and perfects the skill until it almost seems natural for others to help him wherever he goes, until the day he realises he doesn’t have to do anything for himself anymore.
