Asking For Help

Asking For Help

Not wanting to seem weak, needy, and incompetent or like we’re taking advantage often keeps us from asking for help, but that’s often an overblown fear caused by our tendency to think the worst. Not asking for help, we miss out on potential knowledge and may end up worsening situations.

Having a support system leads to higher levels of well-being, better coping skills and a longer and healthier life.
