Humans didn't evolve to function in isolation. We are inherently social creatures, and community and connection has been an important piece of the puzzle from the onset.
So why do so many of us insist on "doing it alone" when we're wired to "do it together?"
Kirsten Johnson over at dream big has a great post on our need for the support of others. She points out how vitally important it is to ask for help, and offers some great questions.
when we ask for help, we are vulnerable and we are real. and maybe most importantly, we are not alone. by inviting others in we invite not only help but new perspectives and new ideas. two brains thinking together about one person's life can move things forward at a whole different pace.
what gets in the way of you asking for help?
what help do you want to ask for?
what agreements could you make with the people you love to make asking for help easier?
On a side note, Kirsten's blog is consistently fabulous, so if you haven't checked it out, you should. It's woth reading.
