It just occurred to me in reading these exchanges, that if we are so willing to give to others, let them rely on us, listen with a compassionate ear and think these are positive attributes, why should we be so willing to let others experience the same sense of value we have when we provide help?

oh how true!! Read my mind and know what I want and need-of course!!!!!!!!
I am learning, through the years, to rely on others when I need them and there is no shame in needing help, we all do from time to time!

I also think because we, as women, are reticent to ask for help, then we develop this annoying habit of thinking someone should just see what we need and provide it.

CarolJean-I think that is so true! I think especially for women--we are taught we should be able to take care of everything, all the time. truth be told, it is strong to ask for help as needed-

Thank you. A nice thought to start the day.

I do believe that a lot of people need to hear that.

Why or how have we somehow be taught that it is impolite to ask for what we need?

I LOVE AND APPROVE OF MYSELF

I appreciate all that I do. I am good enough just as I am. I speak up for msyelf. I ask for what I want. I claim my power.
