I Can’t Be All The Things For All The People

I Can’t Be All The Things For All The People

Something about me: I hate asking for help. I will run myself absolutely ragged before I ask someone to help me with anything.

For a long time, I thought that made me a strong person. Like I was better than everyone else because I could seemingly “do it all.”

Turns out, the inability to ask for help is one of my biggest weaknesses as a person.

It causes me to resent others because I don’t think they are doing as much as I am, but the reason they aren’t is because I won’t let them. See how twisted that is?

It’s been a major source of anxiety for me. Self induced anxiety, as I like to call it.

I’m slowly learning that I can’t do it all. Especially with a newborn baby in my charge.

Sometimes, I need to ask for help. Sometimes, I need to delegate. Sometimes, I need the people in my life to force their help on me (a little tough love, if you will).

I can’t be all the things for all the people and still take care of ME. And that’s ok.

Are you bad at asking for help?
