We all need a helping hand sometimes. Some of us need many hands. Some of us need help all the time. Some of us need a lot of help but for a short time. But at some time we all need a little help. We are all different and yet the same. This is a good thing.
One of the things that makes it easy for us to help one another is the fact that in truth we are way more similar than we are different. One of the things that can make it difficult for us to ask for help is the fact we are similar may reveal too much to another if we do ask for help. To be revealed is to be healed.
Take my advice (and I already have, so I know it works…smile). Life is a lot simpler when I ask for help when I need it. I know this from experience because for many years I was not able to ask for help when I needed it. Therapy helped change this but as they say “practice makes perfect” and that is what really cinched it for me. I actually push myself to ask for help. It is not always easy but it is always worth it.
People who love us do not judge us. Judging is not part of loving someone. Judging is part of the struggle any of us can face when we do not deal head on with our internal insecurities. Judge not and ye shall not be judged is not speaking about others, it is speaking to us about our own thoughts and feelings.
So the next time you think you need some help just ask. Just reach out and ask someone who loves you if they will help you. Remember to make it a question not an expectation. It is one thing to ask and yet another to demand. Life is a dish best served with invitation not expectation.
