Have you been in a position where you needed help, but was too independent to ask?
My reasons why I didn’t ask.
That was me most of my life. I was one of those people who only asked if that was my last option. Depending one people was hard for me. I told my mother at a young age that I never wanted to depend on anyone. Like me
When you’ve been let down so many times in life you tend to figure everything out on your own. I hear people tell me I am strong because of some of the things I’ve been through in life. Not realizing that strength is in your ability to ask for help too. You cannot do everything on your own. Billionaires have assistants and people that work for them. They aren’t juggling every hat themselves. So, why should you?
If God told us to ask, why is it so hard?
In the Bible, God says “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.” – Matthew 7:7 (KJV)
Here are some reasons:
- We’ve been doing it on our own this long. Why would we need someone now?
- Not giving people the opportunity to hurt us.
- Don’t want to look like failures.
Being superwomen and superman gets tiring. None of those reasons are worth you are losing yourself or being burnt out. Stop allowing good resources to go to waste because you have to much pride. Start asking for help because it’s out there for reason. You’re not a failure because you need help, you only fail when you don’t ask for help.
It took me until I was completely homeless to really seek help. Going to the salvation army and churches for whatever they could offer. Being blessed with an 8-day hotel voucher. I was also blessed with many other things. However, it took for me to be tired and hit rock bottom to seek the help that’s always been there. All I’m saying is don’t be like me. You are not too good to ask for help. You will never know what’s in store for you if you don’t ask.
