When did I learn that asking for help was a sign of weakness? When did I learn that if I asked for help that I would be bullied, stomped on, ridiculed? When did I learn that if I asked for help people wouldn’t like me? When did I learn that if I asked for help I would be a model, an example for others to do the same and that there is no shame in asking for help? When did I learn that if I don’t receive help that I need to ask someone else? Childhood taught me well. Did I learn this from my 5 older brothers, my parents, friends? Who knows.

When did I learn that if I asked for help I would be a model, an example for others to do the same and that there is no shame in asking for help? When did I learn that if I don’t receive help that I need to ask someone else? What I know now is that if you ask for help, it will be there if you ask for it. Will it be there from the first, second, or third person you ask? Maybe. If the help is still not there when you ask, ask someone else. Ask someone new. Reverse these questions and help someone too. Help them because they may need help even more than you. Asking for help actually can create a community of support and friendship. An amazing circle of comfort and growth. What a gift.

Helping starts with you. When will you be an example for others, to give permission to others, that asking for help is not a sign of weakness? I dare you to stand up strong and give full permission.

Cheers
