Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock

Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SELF.

Depending on what I am doing depends on whether I will ask for help or not. I will sometimes ask people for help when I have written something in order to check grammar, spelling, layout, choice of words etc. Sort of like an author talking to an editor. Other things I will deal with on my own.

I have learned in the last few months that matters of myself, I need to deal with them myself and not ask others for help. I know that “a problem shared is a problem halved” but sometimes “a problem shared is a problem doubled”.

We all do need help at sometime though. There are things that we just can’t get through alone. Asking for help isn’t as bad as it seems, and it shows that we are human. It can take a lot of courage to say the words … “please … I need help”

Remember … you are not alone. You have friends. You can ask for help at any time from any of your friends.

  1. Great write up, Alastair, and I think there are times when we need to “think” things through and to be our own problem solvers. Then again, there are times when asking for help is completely fine and more of a sign of strength, then weakness…:)

  5. Asking for help is not easy & has rarely been easy for me. I tend to help people all the time when asked & wish I’d get the same in return. Unfortunately – that’s not the way it usually goes. I’v learned to say no more & sometimes I even add a Too Bad So Sad… LOL
    I kinda’ do feel guilty though. I’m messed up.
