Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #26
In today’s post we will talk about how asking for help from others is an act of self love. If you have decided that you are going to be self love and you are going practice self love, then one thing that is most important for you to do is asking for help because we all need it. People who love themselves often ask for help and then receive that help with an open heart. Ask for help, follow through, receive that help, let people help you. It doesn’t make you vulnerable, but it makes you more self confident when you are addressing your own need for help. Let someone else pay for your groceries if they are offering, let your partner do something around the house, let him pick up the kids, let your best friend bring over dinner, let her pick her up, let her listen to you vent for a change (that’s a big one). Get everything out on the table because more often than not, we think that we can talk to people, and we can ask for help and we think that we are good at receiving it but we are really not because we really cut ourselves off right at the good part, we cut ourselves off at the point where we are totally at this cathartic release of our emotions and feelings, we do not give ourselves permission to go there. Don’t feel guilty about it.

Think of it as it was your best friend or loved one in this situation. Wouldn’t you want to help them in any way possible even if it meant listening to their rants.
