I used to hate asking for and receiving help because it made me VULNERABLE. I thought being VULNERABLE was scary because it made me weak. I wanted to protect myself so I kept trying to handle everything on my own. Eventually, I burned out and needed help, but resisted receiving it. I even fought it at times. Once I got back on my feet, I returned to acting the same way until I burned out again. I repeated this cycle several times because I was too proud to ask for and receive help.
Choosing to not ask for and receive help kept me stuck and on a continuous rollercoaster ride of burnout. My choice and pride caused me to miss out on many opportunities and experiences.
It took me a long time to realize that asking for and receiving help was one of the best self-love action steps I could take to be present, well, and the REAL ME.
Watch the video below and find out what I had to say about the connection between being VULNERABLE and Self-Love.
