Speak Your Shame

No Shame in Asking for What you Need

Leave a comment

How comfortable do you feel asking for what you need or want? Do you feel shame when asking for help? Do others make you feel ashamed when you ask?

We all need one another. We all need help. We can’t do it alone.

If you’re surrounded by people who make you feel ashamed when you ask for help then ditch those people and find people who are happy to help you in your time of need.

It takes courage and vulnerability to ask for what you need. It takes courage and vulnerability to put yourself out there and ask for help.

Some of the things we may ask for:

– Your partner’s time and attention
– A friend to listen to you without judgement
– A much deserved raise from your boss
– To be respected

It’s only in the asking can you get to where you need to go or be.
