We could all use a bit of help every now and then.
Sometimes I wait too long before asking for help. Maybe my ego gets in the way—and that’s when I try to act as if I can live all of life solely on my own.
Life and its thousands of little drama pieces can result in feelings of being overwhelmed … like when your emotions flow and you whine, feel bad, complain, pout, lie, cry, deny, and fault-find.
That’s when you need to blow your nose, wash your hands, take responsibility, and tell yourself that the world isn’t coming to an end. Then decide which of these is your current frame of mind:
- I can handle what’s happening.
- I could use some help navigating life right now.
Get to know yourself.
Growing and maturing requires your effort and attention.
Think out your thoughts and talk with someone you trust.
If you found yourself in a situation where you’re carrying too much weight … and life feels like more than you can handle … and you’ve cried your share of cries, then consider asking for help. Asking for and/or receiving help is a sign of strength.
