People always say “I’m good” when their not. “I got it” when they don’t. “I can do it” when they can’t. I don’t care who you are, everybody needs a little help. Including me. And that help goes for anything such as, a dream you may have, goals you have, finding a career, school work, help with the kids, work, someone to listen and the lists goes on. Let me be the first to say, I NEED HELP!
How many times do we hear, “Call me if you need me,” “Do you need help,” “Is there anything I can do to help?” And so on and so forth. Seriously! We always hear this. But we never take advantage of it. We always try to remain cool and say, “I’m cool, I got it!” I am so guilty of this, I’ve done this, I do this all of the time. But really I want to say, “Yes please, can you help me.” Or, “I need help!”
I can’t speak for everyone but I’m sure some can agree that sometimes I just feel like it is easier to say, “I got it” instead of saying, “Yes I need help!” We tend to let our pride get in the way. We don’t want people to judge us or look at us a certain way. Or sometimes the help being offered is not genuine. Alot of times people offer help but there is that small print that has to be read at the bottom. They want something in return. And that keeps people from getting the help they need. To that I say, if the help is genuine take it and run with it. “Get help when you can, help others when you can.”
But think about this, why does someone say, “Call me if you need me” or “I got you?” So on and so forth. They obviously say it because they mean it. I don’t think people just walk around saying it to everyone. They say it to the people that it applies to. So if someone says it to you, that is a blessing that you need to take advantage of. Don’t be ashamed to say you need the help. Don’t be ashamed to except help when it is offered to you. I know, sometimes it is easier said than done. I am guilty of sometimes saying, “I got it,” when I know I don’t. But what is harder? Struggling, or saying yes to an offer of help? I say the struggle is harder.
Just imagine how far you can get if you let that person help you. Everyone and I mean everyone needs help at some point in their life. Even the rich, famous, and successful have people helping them. They have people who work for them. They can’t do it alone. It takes a team.
You can miss out on alot when you let your pride get in the way, when you turn down help from someone who can really help you. From what I have learned in life, It’s not always what you know it’s who you know. If who you know can get you where you want to be, where you need to be, then stop saying “I got it” when help is being offered and say, “Yes please, I need help!” It won’t hurt.
Help is not always by way of money or materials. Help sometimes is a simple hug or and ear that will listen. Help is someone helping you get your ideas, your vision, your dream into a plan. Help getting you from point A to point B. Help is someone simply being there, being supportive when no one else is. So forth and so on.
So next time you say, “Call me if you need me,” you better believe me when I say I will. When someone offers to help you, take it. When they put their hand out to assist, let them. When they say “call me if you need me”, pick up the phone and call. Let people help you. Especially when they are the one who initiates the offer to help you. Even if they don’t offer the help, just ask. What is the worst they can say, No? A closed mouth won’t get fed.
Remember this, In life you will hear a whole bunch of no’s, but all it takes is one yes. Never let someone tell you what you can and can not do. It takes one person to believe in you. And if that one person offers to help you, let go of your pride and let them help you.
Ask for help! Take the help when it is offered. -MsDraya
So again, let me be the first to say, I NEED HELP!
