Why is it so hard to ask for help?

I need a lot of help.  With so many things.  Why is it so hard to ask?  Why is there shame in asking for help, in admitting you need it?

I don’t know.  I know that Jamie’s wish prompt for this week had me stumped.  So here it is, the biggest, ugliest thing I have – the thing that needs the most help, right today:

I am wishing for better words.  I need to learn how to communicate lovingly.    I need to dig under all the caught-in-the-moment emotions and find my truth.  Then I need to step above my anger and my hurt and share the truths hidden amongst them.

And I need help knowing when it’s my turn to shut up and listen.

Actually, that would be a good place to start.

I am wishing for help to listen well, and help to  share my truth with love.
