It’s Ok to ask for help

It is a beautiful 84 degrees outside today and even with the threat of global warming I enjoyed driving in my car with the window down a bit listening to a classic Beetles album! If you are like me you have old favorites that you play over and over too! I sometimes derive new meaning in tried and true songs that show they really are written from the heart of another human being much like you and I- even John Lennon from 1965.

Help! (vocal John Lennon verse 1)

When I was younger so much younger than today I never needed anybody’s help in any way

But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured

Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors

In my younger years I was pretty certain about many things. I now realize that being too certain was probably a way to cope with the actual UNCERTAINTIES of life, relationships, choices and opinions. I feel now that even with trying to learn and grow that I am certain about far less than I was 35 years ago! Why? Because of learning and growing and interacting with so many people I have realized that being certain is less important than having wisdom and grace.

Perhaps you are wondering if you are quite so sure of your choices, thoughts, relationships, communication or how to process your feelings. It’s ok to ask for help. It’s ok to admit you could use some help. It’s ok to model to your friends and family that strong people ask for help. Give us a call- we can be Somebody that helps.

Alongside you.
