Asking For Help | Daily Mindful Moment #2
Updated: Apr 11
What story do you have around asking for help? Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it? What does it mean to you if you can't do something on your own? What does being self-sufficient mean to you? What new meaning might you be able to attach to asking for help that could serve you better? How can you seek a better balance between asking for help and doing things for yourself.
Wow. I've been thinking a lot about this today. This has been a hard week for me, but when some of my closest people started to offer real support by taking things off my plate or helping me do things I need to do, I initially wanted to reject the help. Why? I realize that I put a lot of stock in seeing myself as being strong, unwavering, capable, and NOT needing help to accomplish certain things. Thankfully, I was in a bad enough spot to not reject the help out of my own ego. I needed help. Help was offered... Why would I not accept it? This is not to say that my I have put aside my pride once and for all, but I am happy to start becoming more aware of this pattern in my life. I want to keep questioning the meaning that I am attaching to needing help. Maybe this is something that would be beneficial for you to examine in your own life, too?
