If you’re like me and independence runs through your blood then asking someone for help is the last thing that you want to do. What I have learned over the years is that you cannot do this thing called life alone.
Here are five simple reasons why it’s okay to ask for help:
1.Two is better than one
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:19. Even the bible says it, not saying that your prayers alone won’t work, but when you come into agreement with someone on a subject you’re more powerful together.
2. Vulnerability deepens the relationship
Sharing an issue that you are dealing with, with someone close to you is the most vulnerable experience in this lifetime. Being that open and honest with someone causes your relationship to deepen in ways unimaginable.
3. Loneliness is the devil’s playground
When you are going through a hard time and you keep things to yourself, you tend to be too harsh on yourself. Your mind can’t see past the issue causing you to become more depressed. The best thing to do is to find someone you can confide in, so that they can give you a different perspective. They can encourage you to keep pushing until you overcome the issue.
4. You deserve good people in your life
Surrounding yourself with good people is good for your health. Good people are always there for you. They are always prepared to encourage you and push you past your comfort level. They help you to mature and live the best possible life.
5. You are loved
When we are dealing with a big issue in our lives it’s easy to forget the simple things. You forget that you have a BIG God that loves you and you forget that you have family and friends that care about you.
Ask for help today, it will be the best decision you will ever make.
