Is hard to say. Because, I should be able to figure it out on my own, right?
I used to feel this way. But looking back, the seasons where I've seen the biggest growth have been the seasons when I challenged my limiting beliefs and asked for help.
🥕 Recovering from my ED was harder and more painful before I asked for help.
🥕 Coping with the loss of my brother was harder and more painful before I asked for help.
🥕 Managing my anxiety and creating a healthy (read as: not all-or-nothing) relationship with food was harder and more painful before I asked for help.
🥕 Growing my Nutrition Coaching business was harder and more painful before I asked for help.
And these are just a few of many examples. The list goes on!
I used to think asking for help demonstrated weakness but I quickly realized that nothing could be further from the truth.
Accepting that struggle is normal, overcoming pre-conceived notions about what it means to ask for help, and choosing to call upon the experience and expertise of someone who has been there/done it before in order to get to where you want to go - faster and more effectively - is one of the greatest displays of strength a person can demonstrate.
Because we can't do it all alone.
And once we realize that and ask for the help that we need, we're likely to discover that it's one of the best decisions we've ever made.
Has there ever been a time in your life when you asked for help and were glad you did?
