Daily Dose of Self Love

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.

Need more inspiration of not feeling guilty? Here are some basic tenets you would find useful > https://empress2inspire.blog/2020/12/09/basic-tenets-of-life-part-2/

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.

Come back tomorrow for more inspiration on self love.

      Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it is actually not asking for help that’s the sign of weakness. Giving and receiving help from others is one way for you to grow as a human being. It is hard to do, especially when the things that you need help with are not very easy.

        I know 😧 this is such an important message that I agree with completely. Choosing who to ask for help that’s another article all together ☺️ but yes giving and receiving help and support is what makes being human so beautiful ❤️

        Another fear is being perceived as needy. “We don’t want to be ashamed of our situation, or come across as incompetent,” she says. “So we work really hard to make sure people don’t see us this way.” This idea is amplified during the Covid-19 crisis: You may feel that people have their own worries to take care of, so yours aren’t significant.

        That is true. That’s why we need to value relationships and having genuine good people in our lives as well as aim to be genuine good hearted people ourselves ☺️ we all fall. Woe is the man who has no one there to pick him up

    Hi Garima,

    Seeking help is hard especially with men. However, like a good friend said, people are looking for opportunities to help, so let them know you have a need. We need that now more than ever as societies reconnect, right? Do you see that in India?

    Thanks,

    Gary

      It’s the same culture everywhere Gary. People are hardwired to want to do things on their own and be independent-minded. Asking for help often makes people feel uneasy because it requires surrendering control to someone else. There are some people who really have a hard time with that piece of it.

        We are always learning and growing all of our lives. So, a little humility goes a long way.

      I believed that to be strong meant to be tough and able to face all challenges on my own. I was trying to be flawless and courageous in all areas of my life. I felt proud when I had achieved my goals without asking for help.
