Summary: We all know how it’s like to be struggling in life. Especially emotionally. We all have emotions and they can be overwhelming sometimes. It is easy in situations to do what I call “hermitting ” and shove those emotions down. Those emotions however never truly go away. What happens is those emotions fester and stay in your body. The question is “how do you get rid of them?” The answer is short… you get rid of them the process however is not as short. It also requires asking for help from others. When you ask for help you ARE NOT SHOWING WEAKNESS you are showing strength of wanting to live a more prosperous life. In today’s blog I go over the process of different ways of asking for help and how asking for help will make your life better.

The first thing I want you to know is that you are amazing and have the potential to do anything in life. You have the will power within to do great things. Great things don’t have to be big. They can be as simple as smiling at someone. The first step to asking for help is understanding the process of transformation. Transformation doesn’t just happen in an instant it requires time and a plan of action. A lot of people when they struggle don’t ask for help because they feel like they can do it on their own. Some people I believe truly can but it is a lot harder to do alone. Mental health is something that people lose sight of and don’t take care of. Then one day they feel so desperate and don’t know what to do or if they can go on. Which is a very sad thing to think about because there are so many amazing resources out there to get help. I want you to ask yourself where your emotions are at. If you have negative emotions like sadness, anxiety or depression for example I want you to try to understand where those are coming from. Dig deep and think about any event that has happened to you to trigger those. The next step is action. Decide what you feel like you need to do to get rid of and work through those emotions. If you haven’t journaled , try it. If you need to talk to someone about them, do it. Therapy or a life coach can help too. The goal of that is to make your mind think about what you think would help. If you don’t know what to do off the top of your head google is a great way to research and find things out to help you take action to help get rid of those emotions.

The next step is truly asking for help. Come up with a plan of your needs and your boundaries that you believe are going to serve you to grow. Be careful however if you are living in a place of fear or a scared mindset being exposed in small doses to the things that make you uncomfortable will help you grow. If something isn’t going to serve you then it’s okay to say no but if you’re saying no because you're scared, analyze where those emotions are coming from and why they're happening. Asking for help can feel intimidating. It’s human nature to worry about what others think and if they will judge you. However when you are vulnerable most people are supportive and it also will inspire them to be more vulnerable and open to working through their emotions. I am a person who believes in God. If you believe in God, start there. Try talking or praying and asking for guidance and help. After that feels comfortable and you’re ready/need more help to reach out to a close loved one. If you are a person who doesn’t believe in God, start with that step. After you talk to a close person. If you want to inspire others and talk about your journey you can start talking to more people.

You are now on your journey to reaching your goals and creating a prosperous life for yourself. This could be too much for you to think about right now, but once you choose to ask for help and are vulnerable you will have the opportunity to help others and change other people’s lives for the better. The hard things that happen in life are opportunities to learn from and also help others to work through their hard things. Healing is a journey and once you are healed take what you have learned and share your message. Sharing your message will help others. I hope you liked today’s blog and learned something from it.
