Are You Afraid to Ask for Help?

Updated: Sep 11, 2022

If you can’t do it, have enough courage to seek, ask and receive help. Receiving help is difficult for many for various reasons. One who has been disappointed by others in life often cringes at the idea of needing to ask anyone for anything.


I’ll admit, I need help with my small business Breuchkelen Eclectic. Being on a shoestring budget for now often restricts and prolongs the number of goals and tasks that I can humanly complete in a timely manner. This often leads me being a bit stressed. My skill sets are great and I am learning more each day but being able to receive help from someone with another skill set is essential in whatever goals need to be accomplished.

Ego is another obstacle that can be immobilizing when needing help. Being a know-it-all restricts our access to acquiring what we need in a timely fashion. People that can help are least likely to do so if we are not in a space of honesty, humility and vulnerability to name a few. Who wants to help a know-it-all? Not many, that’s for sure.


The onset of 2022 has been an eye-opener for me. I am putting myself out there by seeking help from friends and family. Yesterday was a humbling experience for me that left me feeling a little bit smarter and more accomplished. My 10-year-old niece Jade gave me a 45 minute tutorial on how to create and post content on Tik Tok.



They say that the teacher will become the student and the student will become the teacher.

As a former teacher for almost two decades, I have had to rely on my students to teach me things, this is one of those examples. After successfully posting, I thanked Jade for her patience and willingness to help Auntie. Reflecting on this experience made me realize how this scenario is so indicative of life. I don’t have to do everything? This is the question that I asked myself. We don’t have to do everything when there are people that we can call on to help us to help ourselves.


Once we set the intention to ask for help, our God/Higher Power/Universe will send the help. We just have to be open-minded about who we’ll receive the help from.


What do you need help with and who do you feel vulnerable enough to ask? Remember that asking for help and hearing a “No” is not the end of the world, it just means that we are one step closer to seeking what is seeking us. Challenge yourself to ask more.

Thank you for this awesome message. Also, thank you for being obedient and sharing it. Your products are amazing, and I look forward to ordering more when I move in a few months.

I asked someone for help this morning, and she immediately gave me a time today for me to call her. I will continue to reach out. People are available. They just need to know we need them. ❤🙏🏽

Thank you for this transparent share! This was inspiring and I get it! I’m in a relatable space, one of my challenges is sometimes not knowing where to start with the asking so I just leave it altogether, which isn’t productive either. I hope you’re proud of yourself for the steps you made to getting where you’re going! It’s all purposeful and will bear good fruit!
