I am not at all skilled in asking for help. It is like a anti-skill – not only do I not have it, I have the opposite of it.
Even when help is offered by a trusted friend I have a hard time accepting it. I am not sure where this comes from. At it’s best, this makes me very independent, self-sufficient and confident. At its worst this means I often do *not* get everything done resulting in stress or a regret of having to let things go.
Oddly, I enjoy helping other people and feel good when I can do so! I am also OK with saying no and expect my friends to do the same.
So why is it so hard for me to ask for help????
On Friday, my (Reverse) Mentors, Christina and David offered to take care of shipping out books while I am away and I said yes! They are wonderful to offer and now I can have books going out over the summer – yay! I am relieved and appreciative. There is some work to get the “kit” together and a few calls to make but other than that, it is easy and amazing to have their help!
Intention for the day? HELP and BE HELPED.
How do you ask for help???
