Ask for Help

Self sufficiency is an enemy when it causes us to believe we can do everything in our own strength. We were not placed on this Earth to go at it alone. Life revolves around helping one another. We often hesitate to ask others for help because we’re afraid to approach them out of embarrassment or the fear of rejection. There are also times when we wait so long to ask for help, that by the time we do so, the problem has magnified and become more difficult to solve.

Imagine the amount of time you could save by asking for directions at the first sign of being misdirected in your travels. By not doing so, you lengthen the amount of time it would typically take to reach your destination. Asking for help eliminates unnecessary frustration. When you demonstrate the humility to ask for help, you often earn the respect of others. And most importantly, when help is extended, be appreciative of it.
