day31: you don't need to go it alone ...

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day. Asking for help isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don't know something, and then allows you to learn something new. 
Barack Obama

Asking for help is a wonderful practice and for some reason many of us feel that it is some kind of sign of weakness.  
(I think it has something to do with the 'puritan ethic') 
But asking for help is a wise and powerful act, on many levels.

One thing that I have learned is that people have different skills and different interests. So, for example,  there may be someone who understands a subject that you are having trouble with and they can help you understand it better.  Or someone has been through a tough experience and has learned some coping mechanisms that they can share with you.

I also LOVE how President Obama points out that by asking for help you open yourself to learning something new! 
(And you know I love anything to do with learning something new!) 

So if you find yourself struggling with a class, an emotion, a situation, a relationship, a decision ... don't get overwhelmed!
 go find someone who can help, be it a friend, a teacher, counselor or professional.  
You don't need to do this 'life' thing on your own!!
love, mom
