It takes courage to admit that we are struggling and to ask for help.
We often think that admitting struggle is a sign of weakness, yet it happens to all of us. We all get overwhelmed sometimes. We all experience the highs and lows of life.
We all need help sometimes.
Acknowledging this, is not a sign of weakness, but is rather a sign of acceptance and humility. We recognize that we are not perfect, and are simply human. We all need each other.
To deny that we need help is to deny reality. To choose not to ask for it, is a choice that comes from a false sense of who we “should” be.
It can be hard to let go of this ego thinking, yet the good news is that people really do care.
If someone you know is hurting, would you offer your support? If someone you know got into a tough situation, and they ask you for help, would you give it? I expect you would, because you have been there too.
It takes courage to open our hearts to being vulnerable and letting go of ego thinking and judgments.
If you are carrying more than you can handle right now then take heart, ask for help and let someone else in.
You are not alone.
