Okay. So I felt really inspired to write about this since this has been on my mind lately. I also know you all really enjoy these types of posts every now and again. So here it goes.
I feel like I am constantly going all of the time. With work, grad school, planning a wedding, trying to find time to visit family that lives hours away, and not feeling like I’m letting people down.. I feel like I spread myself pretty thin most days. I have such a hard time asking people for help whenever I am feeling overwhelmed. I am not talking just financially.. I’m also talking emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I am not sure why I give myself such a hard time about asking for help. I don’t really want to burden people with any issues I have. I think a lot of us feel this way at one point or another and that is why I decided to write this. I can’t even tell you how many times I have felt so overwhelmed and praying that I won’t lose my mind. I have family and friends who offer help/advice/whatever it may be, but I always tend to say “I got this.” or “I’ll be fine. I promise.” Which is so true. God has never faced me with something I haven’t made it through.
But, my problem that I am facing with the whole asking for help issue is that I don’t understand why I have such a negative connotation with asking for help. I think in my mind I associate needing help with being weak. And that is not the case at all. It’s kind of interesting to me that if any of my friends or family ask for my help with something, I don’t think of them as needy or weak.. I just help them. So, why can’t I ask for help. I don’t know. I’m a work in progress. I just needed to write about how I’m feeling because I know there are people out there who feel the same way. And I don’t think its a bad thing to ask for help. If someone loves you.. a friend, family member, significant other.. whoever it may be, if they love you they will not question helping you. I am slowly realizing this and asking for help instead of felling alone when I get so overwhelmed. Anyways, I know this post was all over the place, but I hope this resonated with at least one of you. Make sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments section or my Facebook/instagram pages. I would love to hear your thoughts. Happy Wednesday sweet friends. XOXO.
