Loving Yourself Means Support Yourself

Next up in the list of Louise Hay’s The Power of Self Love is Loving Yourself Means Supporting Yourself.

She says, Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when you need it.

This is another challenging one for me. I’d rather move a car by myself, push it uphill than ask for help. I learned to be very independent after my parents divorced. At times there wasn’t anyone to help me so I always figured it out by myself. Now when I do ask for help, it means I need it.

For us that find asking challenging and hard to do, we must remember there are helpers out there. That’s their gift is to help others. They enjoy doing it and some love to do it. I have tribe members that love to help. They have helped me move, decorate, given me rides, and the list goes on. If they didn’t help others I believe they would feel as though they were not serving others and fulfilling their purpose.

Asking for help means that you love yourself enough to ask for support. It’s a sign of strength and bravery. We don’t have to do anything alone. Allow others to use their gifts to help us. Prayers are oftentimes answered through helpers. If we don’t ask and allow sometimes we miss our answer. Love yourself enough to ask for help.
