Day 25: It’s okay to ask for help
This is a really good one for me. I’m pretty stubborn and I used to have a really hard time asking for help. I still have the tendency to try and do everything on my own, but I’ve learned to say uncle from time to time when it becomes too much.
I think it is assumed that asking for help is somehow showing weakness, but it’s actually the opposite. Not asking for help is more of a sign of weakness than having the intelligence to know when you need an extra hand and the strength to not be ashamed to ask for it.
If you are struggling, don’t be afraid to utilize to tools at hand. It doesn’t mean you are weak, it means you have a desire to feel better and be better. No matter what it is, there is help out there.
It’s okay not to be okay sometimes, don’t be so hard on yourself.
