Ask for Help

We could all use a hand with something from time to time, or a hug when we’re lonely, or someone who is willing to sit and listen to us when our minds are full. But, often, asking for help is hard. Are we weak if we have to call for back-up? Quite the opposite…
Asking for help requires courage, trust and vulnerability. Implied in a request for support is the idea that we can’t manage it all on our own. But also hidden in an ask is a compliment: I think you would make this situation better. And, every time we reach out to someone to ask for help, we are sewing another stitch in the fabric of community.
Today, give someone a compliment by asking them for their help with something.
