Some of us are afraid to ask for help because of our pride. Here’s what I learned after my move over the weekend: ASK FOR HELP!
Here are some helpful tips:
1) Know to ask for help before frustration and anger take over. This is the first and most important step. If you’re an “overdoer” and want to handle things by yourself, it may not be as easy to identify what exactly you’ll need help with. Take a few minutes to ponder this.
2) Leave behind feelings of shame and embarrassment. Just because you’re asking for help doesn’t mean you’re a failure. It’s actually wise and a very successful strategy because it will save stress and time.
3) Talk to someone who you’re close to–like a friend or family member–if you’re feeling a bit intimidated asking for help from someone else. Maybe they can point you in the right direction. Think about what will happen if the situation is not dealt with and all the weight is on your shoulders.
