Be willing to ask for help whenever you need it

Be willing to ask for help when you need it.

Asking for help is one of the most difficult things for most of us to do.

We fear it demonstrates weakness and failure. We refuse to see our tough, capable facade fall away from us.

But what if we can admit that we are human and that we are fallible and that we can get tired or that we can become lost? Acknowledging that some burdens are too heavy to carry alone is not weakness but strength.

We wouldn’t hesitate to ask for help if we had to lift a car from one point to another. Trying to do so alone, is simply pointless and would damage us. Same with carrying many of life’s loads.

Strength is distinguishing what we can manage on our own and what we need help with. We are then able to share that load with those that are willing to help and conserve strength and build resilience for the future.

As you start the month of July, have this action point in mind: Ask for help when you need it, whenever you need it.
