“ASKING for HELP is SO MUCH STRONGER than STRUGGLING on your OWN” – words spoken during one of my sister team’s Team calls, and they hit me LIKE. A. BRICK.
When did we start associating needing help with being weak, or less than, or anything other than brave and courageous? And why?!
There is NOTHING weak about needing, and asking for help. Weak is being so stubborn you won’t ask for the help you need, deserve, and are WORTHY of. Weak is brushing troubles under the rug, only for them to creep out later instead of dealing with them head on. Weak is dismissing your pain – whatever format it comes in – and “soldiering on”.
You are better than your demons. If you need help, ASK for it. It’s the strongest thing you can do! Life is tough – we could ALL use a helping hand at one time or another.
