Why asking for help is truly important


I want to share something with you I’ve been struggling with in my life. 

Asking for help.

I believed (and learned) I had to do and be everything on my own. A strong women, able to keep everything in her life going in an ‘orderly’ fashion. 

I’m a mom, an entrepeneur, a teacher, an artist, a daughter, a partner, a friend. 

I hustled, I organized (I tried at least), I was running around trying to make it happen and trying to make everybody happy.  

But what happens if you can’t do all this on your own? 

Parts of my life became chaotic and started breaking down. I felt overwhelmed, stressed and very tired.

I wanted to break free from it all. 

Does this mean I’ve failed as a women, as a human? 

No it doesn’t.

It means it was time for me to let go of ‘the strong women who can do it all on her own’ myth. 

It was time for me to start accepting and owning who I was, what I was cabable of doing and what not. 

It was time for me to acknowledge the fact that I wasn’t great at everything. For example, planning, organizing and creating routines in my life. These were huge energy drainers sucking the life out of me. 

I decided to refocus on my talents and abilities, and ask help in other areas I struggled with and are draining my energy. 

Accepting myself more, letting go of the guilt of not being ‘perfect’ and asking for help without shame was and is truly liberating.

Is there an area in your life where you’ve been pushing yourself to much, and it’s just costing you tons of energy? If you feel like sharing, you can do so below this post.
I would love to hear from you.
