I’m the worst at asking for help. Always have been and at this rate I probably always will be.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m to stubborn or because I think that asking for help makes me weak and a failure. Either way I’m sick of being afraid to ask for help.
People have no problem asking me for help and I usually help them so there’s no reason why I shouldn’t ask when I need it.
What’s the worst that can happen if I ask for some help? Someone says no and I move on to figuring out the next step.
It’s such a simple task yet I struggle with it all the time. I have to stop with the mindset that I can do and solve everything on my own because I can’t.
There are times when I simply can’t be in two places at once. I’m going to start asking for help on little things like help with dinner or a project at work. Once I conquer that I will ask for more complicated things like watching my dogs for me when I’m away, and borrowing someone’s car if my is acting up.
I’m hoping to one day get over this fear of asking for help but like everything else it takes time and patience.
Time to get to work and conquer this fear.
