Need help? Try 4 EASE
Being helpful is easy. Asking for help is something else. Most of the times our concerns of judgmental attitudes stop us short. We get lost considering how it belittles us. We ponder the terrible ways people may see us, that they are going to find out about our vulnerabilities and so many other things. It becomes increasingly difficult to find the courage to request the needed aid and support. We can end up so entangled in our own apprehensions that it becomes impossible to move passed them.
Asking for asistance is at the other end of being helpful to someone else. If offering help feels good, being at the receiving end should be the opportunity to noble acts of kindness.
