Asking for help sounds easy enough, but if you’ve ever needed a helping hand, you know how difficult this can be. Before asking for help, please consider yourself & the helper. If the potential helper has a history of using guilt & obligation to manipulate you, remove the drama & seek out a different person!
Seeking help can turn the most self-assured, direct person into a “worry-hog”. We may feel uncomfortable and as a burden to others, or experiencing a sense of stagnation from past mistakes in our relationships. Certainly, these aspects are what has transpired inside of our head. One would believe to think to ask for assistance in order to “by-pass” such misery, but following through with confidence when help is needed is tough for almost everyone. Asking for help may be difficult, but so are most things worth doing.
Here we can discover the 3 common reasons why most individuals choose to remain silent on the approach to asking for help, or how to combat such falsehoods which are attached to asking. With this information, both the helper & receiver may gain an additional appreciation for life each day. One can simply practice the method of “wearing someone else’s shoes for a day”, and consider others as an extension of themselves. We can learn how to gain confidence by facilitating resources for when a need or aide transpires.
2) Past Mistakes
The fear of admitting to our past mistakes is particularly common when more than enough of turmoil adhere to cause friction. An influx in social status, economic plans, or issues within personal relationships can feel like you're failing or incapable of addressing daily conjunctures. Sometimes when we try to control every situation that rapidly emits, it turns out not to be the better approach for us.
In this way, we can ensure a sense of balance before asking someone to assist with our need. Past mistakes will seem like “water underneath the bridge”, allowing a fluidly, positive flow of success in our life by rebuilding a peaceful bond between new & old friends. Do not avoid past mistakes. Actively forgive yourself.
