Who do you call on for help?



So, who do you reach out to for help?

Any type of help… babysitting, emotional support, cleaning, moving house, work etc.

If your answer is no one…

Or you feel the “ick” when you do list the few people you do reach out to…

Then I’m guessing that more often than not you feel overwhelmed, anxious and even frustrated?

I get it! I was like this too once upon a time.

It was only when sh!t really hit the fan that I started to utilise my support networks.

For years I avoided it.

I was embarrassed, I thought people would judge me and think I couldn’t handle stuff.

I judged myself…

I saw myself as weak and inadequate.

I felt guilty for not being able to handle my own sh!t!

Then the universe threw some tough times my way.

But as always, there was a gift in the sh!t – a lesson to be had.

A learning that supported me through some of my toughest times and consequently also made my life easier from then on out.

I FINALLY realised…

Asking for help is a sign of strength!

Plug into the power of togetherness and community.

Utilise the people you love and trust.

Get to know your neighbours.

Join clubs, classes or volunteer organisations.

Connect with professionals.

And if budget allows PAY FOR HELP! It’s ok to!

We are not meant to do life on our own.

We are social creatures – connection and support is vital to our wellbeing.

Because you aren’t an octopus! You don't have eight arms.

YOU CAN'T DO EVERYTHING!

Everyone needs help from time to time, and it is important to remember that it is okay to ask for help.

My parting advice – it’s important to have more than one support, you don’t want to exhaust them.

Plus, different people bring a variety of ideas, perspectives, experiences which can help identify solutions that may not have been considered before.

This blog is only the tip of the iceberg, I cover more in my podcast episode titled Support Networks.

Listen now on PodBean, Apple Podcasts and Amazon Music.

And if there is still a block that’s preventing you from reaching out for help – let’s work together on that.
