Do you find that helping someone feels nourishing, maybe even empowering?
Knowing that, somehow makes it easier for me to receive help. Over the last month I have been feeling rather flat and this week I expressed it to the those close to me. I intentionally did not add a “but-it-is-going-to-be-alright” type of comment, which took some effort, but opened me up for help.
I have been finding myself overwhelmed with support, a lot of it very productive and now I am getting back on track.
For those helping it may have also been valuable - and perhaps more nourishing than simply reading one of my weekly “here-is-some-advice” blog posts.
It is making me think of what a win-win situation asking for help can often be. And why limit it to just the big things?
