Episode 115: Why it’s So Hard to Ask for Help with Your Weight Loss
I’ll bet you are pretty independent. And able to take care of many different things.
So, when there’s an area of your life that isn’t going the way you’d like it to go, you are surprised.
How can you be successful in most of your life, but not in the realm of your eating and your weight?
This is not uncommon. But what separates those who figure out what the problem is and solve their weight issue from those who don’t… is asking for help.
If you think it’s a sign of weakness or a sign that you are too needy, you’re wrong.
Asking for help is one of the smartest things you can do. It will help you get what you want faster and in an easier way.
But so often you may feel shame or just plain discomfort asking someone else to talk to you, give you support, or feedback, or even just sit and listen to you.
These acts require that you be vulnerable with someone. And it’s the act of being vulnerable that allows others to see the real you. You may think that if you revealed your weaknesses to someone else, you’d feel terrible.
In reality, we feel good when we can let it all hang out, with the right person, of course.
Think about an area where you could use some help. Think about your history around asking for help. And now, come into the present moment.
You can do this. Ask for what you need. Be brave.
