Daily Prompt: I am a rock!

11 Jun

WordPress Daily Prompt 6/11/15Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?

No, oh no.  I was taught or learned early on that asking for help was futile or it just made you weak.  Since a young age I have only relied on myself and it’s colored my world quite a bit.  To be the only one helping yourself takes a lot of energy and it’s excruciating lonely.  My health and socialization definitely took a hit.  As I’ve grown into an adult my case manager has regularly told me I need to ask for help and it’s okay too.  I’m still weary, what if they can’t help me?  What if they think I’m weak?  What if they don’t believe me?  What if they don’t think I’m worth helping?  Who says I can count on them anyways?  It all goes back to childhood.  I’m now learning to ask for help more from safe people and still have a hard time asking for help from family unless it is my sister.  You know what they say… old habits die hard.

I'l love to hear your thoughts
