Thursday’s Carrot: Not Being Afraid To Ask For Help

Last week I moved into my new place. One of the hardest things for me to do was overcome my apprehension to ask for help.

How did I do it? Well, 1) I didn’t have many options: I would’ve either had to shell out a whole lot of money to hire movers or ask my friends for help, and 2) I was so stretched and stressed as it was, I was at the tipping point. I came to terms with reality and realized I didn’t have the money to afford movers, and I let go of the thought that I would be burdening my friends. I mean, that’s what friends are for, right? To be there for you in times of need?

I think this was a real breakthrough for me. From here on out, whenever I’m overwhelmed or in need of help, I won’t be afraid to ask. Have any of you had similar experiences to share? If so, please share in the comments box below!
