TALK SHOW EPISODE NOTES
In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared.
This episode is, "I Do Not Ask For Help Enough."
In this show we discuss A Stone* of Solutions™ including:
1) Admitting that there is a problem is awesome!
2) To clarify, this show topic is not about asking for insufficient help (e.g., needing more help, not asking for enough help). It is about failing to task for help at all (e.g., not asking for help enough).
3) We all fall prey to the delusion that "we can do it all by ourselves" from time to time.
4) Unless you are a society of one (e.g., you live on a planet by yourself that you discovered entirely on your own, etc.), you have help in your daily life.
5) Since we all have help, what would cause someone not to ask for more help at all?
6) Often, a life history of experiences where help was not offered by others...
7) Or, help that was promised didn't arrive.
9) Broken trust.
10) Fear of vulnerability (see above).
11) Embarrassment (e.g., "I shouldn't need help").
12) Pride (e.g., "I'll show them").
13) Ego (e.g., "I can do it all by myself and better than anyone else").
14) None of the above options make you look good (or sound rational). Pick the other path. Ask for help, unashamedly and often. I do!
Let's have a frank discussion of the folly of failing to ask for help. Join me!
*A stone is unit of measure equaling 14 pounds (so we have 14 elements in our one stone of solutions!).
