Support. Do you ask for it when you’re needing it?
Most of us are taught that as adults we’re supposed to have it “figured out” and be able to take care of things ourselves...but here’s the thing- what if you feel stuck? What if you feel lost? What if your brain feels foggy? What if you simply cannot do it all?
In moments like these we need connection. We need each other to help us through. Sometimes it’s a hug, sometimes it’s a task being taken care of for you, sometimes it’s just the presence of another.
I’ve learned that one of the biggest ways to instigate depth and vulnerability in relationships is to ask for support.
For most of my life I thought I had to figure it out myself. Which then turned me into that person who had to control everything in order to feel safe...funny thing is - when my life got turned upside down, all I could do was ask for what I needed. And I am so thankful I did. It was one of the most pivotal moments in my healing journey- letting someone take care of me.
I am now forever grateful to those who have played a huge part in my healing and growth. I am forever thankful for their support- even if we’ve drifted or life happened to move us in other directions, I always send love back to you when I think of you.💗
Reach out. Build connection. Ask for what you need. It is one of the most courageous acts you can do to love yourself!
