Asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness

Asking for help can make us feel vulnerable, needy and insecure, but let’s take a look at what it takes to ask for help:

  • Self-awareness- you need to know there a problem in order to do something about it.
  • Trust- trust in others and belief in the power of relationships- a very healthy psychological trait
  • Bravery- willingness to be vulnerable, to sit with and talk through emotional distress.

Seeking help be it through talking to a close friend/family member, finding self -help resources online, or seeking professional help takes a great deal of strength and can be life-changing.
