It's Courageous to Ask for Help
I don’t believe you have to go through hell to know that you can live with peace or light.
I don’t think you have to fight things alone to be considered strong or courageous or wise.
I’ve had to ask for help with so many things in my life.
The best helpers guide you to the answer that you already knew, educate, validate, support, listen, and help you in resolving problems that you haven’t yet productively coped with, while the okay helpers just give you the answer and rob you of the exploration.
Getting help is nothing to be ashamed of.
I think it is very courageous to ask for help.
The more people I work with, whether through my business or in counseling, the more in awe I am of those who are willing to say they’re at one of, if not the, lowest points in their life and have the insight to recognize the benefit of support and then to have the vulnerability to explore how to get through this.
The word that comes up for me when I see people, no matter the situation, is RESILIENCE.
I say all of this because I know there are people silently struggling, thinking they have to hold it together or figure it all out on their own, if that’s you, please know that you don’t have to.
You deserve to get through this and if going at it alone isn’t helping you, it’s okay to utilize resources & ask for help.
My results have been accelerated when I ask for help or get educated or hire a mentor or coach.
It doesn’t make me weak or incapable! I know when I can use help and when It may not be of benefit to me.
Even asking a friend for support can go a very long way.
There’s something so valuable about being held in unconditional positive regard while going through something so challenging. There is non-judgmental, willing to help, empathetic, and insightful support out there.
Your mental health matters!
