Do you have anything to say? You might think that you don’t, but this is not an excuse to block everyone out, and talk as little as possible. Sometimes is necessary for you to speak up, to let the world know what you need and for what you stand.
If you do this, many people will speak against you, even if they don’t know you, but at the same time, some of them, the ones that want to help, will stand with you. No person is strong enough to do everything alone. This is why it’s important to be able to ask for help when it’s needed.
Even if you are used to taking care of things by yourself. Sooner or later you will be forced to ask for help. It is difficult for you to accept that you are not able to solve this because it makes you feel weak and helpless. In truth, admitting that you can’t do everything requires courage.
Your ego will stop you from asking for help for as long as you allow it because it does not want to be weak. Fear is the tool that it uses to keep you from letting people know that you are only human and that you need help. So, when it’s needed, speak up.
Pay attention to what you are saying, but don’t limit your life through the way you express yourself. You are allowed to say everything that is on your heart, but understand that everyone else is also allowed to do so. The words you speak are important, so let them be words that build rather than break down.
There are things that no matter how good you are at, you won’t be able to do alone. This is just the way it is, and when you stumble into something you can’t do it’s necessary that you ask for help. You’re not used to it. All of your life you did everything on your own. Even when things got hard, you put your head down and did the work.
If you are honest with yourself, it was not always the most efficient way to go about things. The effort involved and the time needed would’ve been severely diminished if you accepted help. You are not weak when you admit that you don’t know everything, and ask for someone’s help. It is an act of courage because you show that you are imperfect, like everyone else in this world.
The way you always did things does not have to be the way you will always do things. When you accept that you don’t know something, you give yourself permission to learn that thing. You learn faster by asking for help from someone that already knows how it should be done.
You might be afraid of what people will think when they find out that you don’t know things, and how they will see you as less. Does it really matter? In truth, you will gain something either way when you ask for help. You either solve your problem faster and with less effort, or you learn who is really there for you when needed.
Life can become a lonely experience when you try to do everything on your own. Learn to ask for help, and learn that together can take you further than you can go alone.
