There are moments when you find you have a need. You do all you can and still need help. So you ask for it.

And then there are other times when you second-guess this system, not because you haven’t done all you can do—you have. Perhaps it’s simply to parse down the help you’ll ask for: “I’ll really need help next month, so I won’t ask for it today even though I could really use it now, too…”

While I encourage doing as much as you can, always, without trying to rely on others for help, I’m learning, slowly, to recognize a particularly backward trait: Hesitation for lack of feeling worthy.

Here’s what I’m learning: Give help easily. Accept help graciously. And never, ever, lose sight of the notion that we are always worthy of help.
