A dirty 4-letter word


Am I the only one who finds it so difficult to ask for help?

Yesterday, my coach asked me why I feel so uneasy asking for help. My answer was that I am supposed to be able to do it all on my own. That’s where my value comes from; taking care of everything.

“Where did that idea come from?” she asked.

“It’s generational,” I replied.

She followed up, “how has that served them?”

“Not well at all” was my response.
