Ask for help

“you show me that you don’t need me,” he said frustrated. And it was true! No matter how in pain I was, I would never beg for help! Because that is what comes after asking! You ask for help, when you are dismissed you have to beg. And I had promised myself never to beg for anything!

Prideful? No, I think those who truly care about you will never put you in a position where you need to beg!

Today I ask for help because I know I don’t have to do it all on my own! That’s the fastest way to burnout.

And I wonder if there isn’t a lesson here… I wonder would I have asked for help if I didn’t have chronic illnesses? Regardless of who is my teacher in this, life, growth, or consistent pain… I have learned to ask for help and that ought to be celebrated.
