“When you cannot ask for help without self judgement, you are never really offering help without judgment.”
This week I asked you guys the following questions.
• Why are we all afraid to be needy?
• Why are we all afraid to ask for help?
• And where are we most afraid to be needy?
Here’s what y’all told me—
Top areas where people feel afraid to be needy:
Tops Fears of Being Needy:
Fear of looking weak
Fear of rejection
Fear my needs will push people away (romantic and friendships)
Fear of being viewed as dramatic or exaggerating
You didn’t just decide out of thin air it didn’t feel safe to have needs. You’ve been taught that.
We have trouble saying no. We have trouble speaking up.
But in REALITY….
Being needy means you are HUMAN.
Being needy is the only way to TRULY help others.
And being needy demonstrates emotional strength!
