Is asking for help hard for you? My friends made me aware that I wasn’t asking for help even though they thought I could do with it. 

It made me think why haven’t I asked? Lately, there has been a lot going on with the family so I haven’t had time to pause and think. The thought to ask for help hadn’t really occurred. 

I tend to ask my friends for specific help like watering plants when we are away or if they could help me pick up something. Lately, we have been stuck in the doing and just getting on with things, so we haven’t had a moment to reflect. It’s nice to have good friends that tell you how they see things.

In the past, I would have thought that asking for help would be seen as a sign of weakness or that I should be independent and do everything myself. Nowadays the trickier thing is figuring out what help I need and then I can ask for it. I’m coming up with a list slowly.

My friends told me that people love to help and I know that too. I love to help others so I know it’s true. People can always say no if they can’t help you at this point in time.

What about you? Do you find it difficult to ask for help?
