Should I ask for it?

Letters spelling word help

I’m not so good at asking for help.

People keep telling me I should ask for help more often, but I have always been reluctant.

Then someone said to me…

If you see someone struggling with something, do you want to help?

Yes!

Do you feel it is a privilege/honour/gift to be able to help someone?

Yes!

Do you think any the less of them if they need help to get something done?

No!

Turn that around. Other people would prefer to help you than watch you struggle.

So, ASK!

My best wishes, Paul
