“Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don’t know something, and then allows you to learn something new”-Barack Obama #mentalhealth #askforhelp #anxiety #strength

The theme for October is “courage.” I think we can all use courage in our lives, especially when we are struggling and are so overwhelmed we aren’t sure what to do next. Of course this can relate to our mental health and reaching out to a therapist when we need it, but I want to look at this more broadly so it can apply to our every day…

The challenge this week is to recognize an area of weakness in your life and find the strength to ask for help in that area. For example, it could be small like having your kids learn to do their own laundry or help set the table. It could be asking your neighbor to watch your pets while you travel for work because you don’t have the money for a dog walker. It could be asking a friend to bother you about going to the gym so you actually go. Whatever it is, remember you have the courage within to ask for help, no matter how small a task. I hope through this challenge you do learn something new…that asking for help although it can be scary, can teach you that when you have a little help, it can go a long way!
