This is a topic I have coached many of my clients on – and myself.
Many of us don’t like to ask for help.
It feels uncomfortable to ask and accept help from others.
Have you ever asked yourself why?
We believe that we should be independent.
We don’t want to make other people feel bad.
And often we would be happy to provide the help but not to accept it.
BUT what if you actually want help? What if you need help?
We are humans. Helping each other is how we evolved as a species. We are not independent creatures. You can ask yourself, what does being “independent” even mean?
Other people can say no when we ask. Let them. It doesn’t mean anything about us.
Asking for help lets other people know we are human. It’s how we make meaningful connections. And sometimes it’s how we can take of ourselves.
At first it’s going to feel uncomfortable. You will have to use courage. But if you remind yourself of all the reasons why you want to ask for help, asking will get easier.
Do you need some help right now? If there is something on your mind that you want to talk about, reach out to me. I have one free mini session available this week. I will coach you on a topic so you can get some clarity and I can teach you one extremely powerful coaching tool to take away with you. One mini session can really change your perspective. There is no obligation to sign up to a program, I only work with people who are ready. I want to share this with as many mums as possible! So please sign up here.
