It’s ok to ask for help! One the road to becoming the women of God that we were created to be, we have to learn to ask for help.
It’s so easy to just do everything yourself, and continue trying to be superwoman. I realized just recently that superwoman doesn’t really exist. If she does behind closed doors is, she struggling in secret? I know for me for years I felt that if I asked for help that people would think that I didn’t have it all together. What a relief it was when I let go of that thought process, and learned that sometimes in order to get it together help is required. Even if there are a few who may think you don’t have it all together, that’s ok. Hold your head high and ask for help anyway. At some point in life we have to look beyond what others think and do what’s best for us.
When you ask for help it not only alleviates some pressure but many times it also allows you to gain new knowledge that you wouldn’t have otherwise gained had you continued to do it on your own. It’s like being in a brainstorming session and you have an idea but those you are brainstorming with come up with ideas that you never thought of and you are able to take your original idea even further than you expected. Had that brainstorming session not happened you would still be there at point A trying to figure out the best way to bring the idea to fruition. It’s just the same with asking for help, if you ask you may gain wisdom that can take your life to the next level.
Another thought process that I had to shed regarding asking for help was that the person who I want to ask to help me seems busy and they probably don’t have time to help me. I mean I had people offering help and I would turn it down, because I thought they only offered to be nice. Though for some offers that may have been the case but for the most part people genuinely want to help. Especially if they see you are doing things to better yourself and others around you. I’ve learned that if someone offers help and it’s help I need, I accept the help. With the help that you receive you may be able to in turn help someone else with what you learned.
Sometimes help isn’t always what can be done for you but what can be said to you. I used to have a boss who periodically throughout the week would have little conversations with us about various topics of life. Those talks to me were one of the best benefits that I received from working there. I mean pay raises and vacations were great but the information that my co-workers and I received was life changing for not only us but for our families as well. I never realized the impact and the help that our words could offer until I worked there. Through her help I carry many of the things she taught me with me everyday, and I will be forever grateful to her for her help. In learning the value and help that words offer I try to pay it forward by daily by helping someone from what I have learned.
So if you are in need of help don’t be hesitant to ask for it. It’s ok to ask for help and it doesn’t mean that you don’t have it all together either. Asking for help can allow you to have it more together than you may have it right now. I know it may be a struggle and will take you a bit out of your comfort zone but every so often we need to be stretched, it’s how we grow. I have confidence in you that you have it in you to ask for help when you need it.
Always Remember You Are a Worthy Woman!!
