Why people generally like to be asked to help.

We often speak about the buzz it’s possible to get from helping someone.

And there’s no doubting how good it can feel to lend a hand.

But what if you’re the one who needs help?

What if you’re in a fix that you can’t get out of on your own?

What if you need someone to help you carry your load?

Ask for help.

Why is it so hard to do this though?

Is it because we’re embarrassed to admit that we can’t cope alone?

Is it because we don’t want to be a burden on others?

Is it because we’ve been brought up to deal with things ourselves?

Whatever the reason, it’s time to get over it.

In some cases you’ll face challenges that you’ll never solve without help.

That good feeling you get from helping someone else isn’t exclusive to you, you know.

More often than not, when you ask for help you’ll get it.

And if you ask the right person, they’ll enjoy supporting you too.

So what do you need help with? Who are you going to ask?

And when are you going to ask them?

One thought on “Why people generally like to be asked to help.

  1. I can only agree with you.
    I currently have a broken wrist and no use of my left arm. I’ve had to ask strangers to help me with my umbrella and cashiers in supermarkets to pre-open screw tops for me and everyone has been delighted to help. I know that I get a a buzz from helping other people, so I’ve always asked with a smile and a positive mindset that they will help. When my sister and family came I had to make up things for them to do as I knew they wanted to help 🙂.

    Asking for these things (physical things) is probably easier than asking for help with less visible things.
