Asking for Help
Hi, everybody. This is Jasmyne with Relate Family Therapy in Centennial, Colorado. How do you ask for help? Getting help can be hard. Sometimes when we’re looking for people that can help us with things, we don’t really see what we want right away, or we feel very vulnerable to opening up and saying that we need help. We feel like it’s better if we just try and figure out how to do it ourselves. Sometimes we just let things slip and say it doesn’t need to get done right now, because we don’t want to have somebody know that we need help. Getting help can be hard. We know that we do things in a way that maybe other people don’t. We might have things that we normally do that feel good to us that we just can’t do right now. Asking for help is tough. Looking at somebody and saying, “I’m overwhelmed,” or, “I’m going to plan that I can’t do this, because I don’t have enough time or energy to do it right now,” can be something that you feel like maybe they won’t follow through, or maybe they won’t do it if you ask them. Maybe you’ll feel like you’re burdening them with something that is yours to do. People like to help. People want to help. They want to be there for you. They want to put their time and energy into what you need, too. So, if you’re willing to open up and say what you need, you might be surprised what you get back.
