Asking For Help!?!?

Asking For Help

Today I am going to talk about asking for help and how I have a super hard time asking for help and I also have a hard time accepting help.  I am sure the reason for this is the fact that my grandma hardly ever asks for help.  I have found that I never ask for help.  I feel like I don’t even know how to ask and just thinking about asking for help make me nervous.

As for accepting help I find that I don’t really have people offer to help so I don’t know have much experience with this.  I do know that the few times someone has helped me I feel bad because I think I should be able to do everything myself and hate when I can’t do something.  I do ask for help at work because I am the first to admit that I don’t know it all and even if I did know it all there is no way I can do everything, even if people think that I should be able to.

I guess the hard part for me is I don’t really have anyone who is close enough to me that I would trust to ask.  I say this because I could use help at times with things that are personal and I also would never ask for help from people I don’t know and trust.  I am lucky that now the Multiple Sclerosis isn’t bad enough that I need tons of help.  I am really not sure what I will do when or if I ever get to the point where I have to ask because I am not sure I will be able to bring myself to be able to do it.

Those are my thoughts on asking for help and having people help me.  I need to figure out how to ask for help and how to accept help because I am sure I will need to in the future and right now I feel like I have no idea how to do either.

Do you have a hard time asking for help?  How do you combat it?

    I also have a hard time asking for help but the truth is we all need it sometime in our lives. I know I love to help others in any way I can. I am sure when you ask you will have all kinds of people wanting to do what they can for you. Keep your chin up and ask.

  4. It’s very hard for me to ask for help… working on it because I have no choice with a certain aspect of life.

    I have a hard time too. Makes me feel weak, and needy… two things I don’t ever want to admit to being. Good friends and loving family will not see the inquiry as a burden though! Sometimes it even blesses others when you ask for help. We ALL want to feel needed and appreciated. I know when I reach out to help someone, I never regret it!

  6. Yes, yes, yes.

    After contemplating for a week, today I asked for help. I haven’t received an answer yet….and I’m feeling uptight about having asked.
