Truth time? I (still) think that it's intimidating to ASK. Like you and so many other people, I at least momentarily worry about being a bother or asking for a favor that I can’t return (after all, these authors have nothing to “get” in return from a noob author like myself).
But I’d like to convince you, somehow, to start asking for help, in the name of things that matter to you. You might hear a “no.” You will totally survive. And with time, and enough asking, some pretty amazing things might happen. Kate Courageous
Confessions on the Journey. Asking for help has been a challenge for me. Asking for anything, period.
I somehow had this perception that asking for help meant that I didn't have my shit together, that I was weak and disorganised. Strong women help not ask for help! Oh how much on left field I was!
I have learnt that receiving is part of the equation, in order to be a good giver one has to be a good receiver.
I have learnt that we are on this planet together for a reason, we have to live and work and vibe together to move us forward. There are those who are your tribe and then there are those who are not. The one's who are not have a purpose as well. Those may be the ones who reflect back to us what in our lives require healing and attention or perhaos to cement to us who our real tribe is.
Asking is part of giving and receiving.
What makes a good receiver?
Release of how it is supposed to look- supposed meaning how it looked before, how you believe it should and what the society says- keep an open mind.
Ask and you shall receive!
