Asking for help is always hard, the stigma of asking for help causes greater concern for those that truly need it. On day seventeen of the be kind to yourself challenge enables you to ask for help when you need it. Help comes in many different forms, a community online that shares similar experiences with you is one. Reading a self-help book is one of the best ways to start asking for help.
I find solace when I read, evoking curiosity and disavowing further detriment to my mental state. Reading has a power that I can recognize and use to the best of my ability. That’s why I chose reading as a tool for asking help. It’s the first step when you feel scared, the words on the page leaps out at you and you feel like the author is talking directly to you. I usually feel like the book is meant to be in my hands.
This may seem odd, I know it is odd. I love to read from textbooks, like the one’s school. Really. They’re packed with information that is often overlooked because they are required by a curriculum. It’s through education that I’ve learned about authors such as Brene Brown. It’s true when people say to start where you are, then learn and grow from there. I hope this helps you if you need a little bit of advice on where to start.
