Diary #86 The Mutual Nourishment of Helping

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?
