Bit #5: Don't be afraid to ask for help!

Life Lesson and Bit of Grace 5: Don't be afraid to ask for help once in a while. We all need at different times in our life and it can be hard to reach out a hand. Think of when we were children and needed help doing everything, then we started to get older and want to show our independence and didn't want help with ANYTHING. It might have taken us 10 times longer, fallen numerous times, or the moments when we were so frustrated that it brought us to tears.

Determination, independence, and the "do-it-yourself" attitudes are great, but don't be afraid to ask for help once in a while. People are in our lives to help us from time to time and there are people who have jobs that can help us do things that we might not be able to.

Asking a friend for advice or help with a problem is also a great way to get a different opinion and see the same situation, project, assignment, or problem from a different perspective.

I am a very stubborn and "do-it-yourself person and the older I have gotten and more responsibilities put on my plate, I have learned the importance and value of help from others. One can't do everything alone.

It is truly a life lesson that takes a lifetime to master.

Don't forget to extrend the helping hand to others too.

"Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work."

  1. It seems like such an easy concept but so hard! I'm horrible about asking for help but I'm the first person to offer it...
