Breakaway, The Road to Freedom  

 Breakaway, The Road to Freedom



Dear sallie, 



Wow... where did February go??? This is the last theme week entitled: RELATIONSHIPS MADE POSITIVE.


"To carry each other is not a burden at all but a kind of privilege"         




For the past two weeks I have witnessed the struggle, frustration and total exasperation between family members wanting to help a NEWLY injured relative reluctant to be cared for.


This has been a theme I have heard more than once and one which keeps rearing its head. Phrases like, "Don't want to be a burden", "I don't want

any help" and "I can do it myself" come to mind.


Why is it we're eager to help others, but not ask for what we need? To answer that question, let's take a good look in the mirror. Who's staring back at you?

Ask yourself, "What is it about asking for help that's holding ME back?"

Which resonated with you?

  1. I'm obligated to help them in return.
  2. Don't have the time.
  3. Don't want to be a burden.
  4. I'm not worthy of the care.
  5. Don't want to come across that I can't handle x, y, z....
  6. Don't want to be perceived as "failing".
  7. Don't want people to know how bad it is.
  8. Won't be done the way I want it to be done, have to redo it.

If we don't ask, no one will know we need help; we are not mind readers. What's one area in your life you want extra help with? Physical assistance, childcare, laundry, work load, chores, housework...the list could be endless. Here is the secret! You have a CHOICE!!!! And it's all yours! You can choose to be stressed, overwhelmed and ride the rollercoaster or you can choose to ask. But you have to be willing to let go of expectation and perfection. Someone may not set the table, do the dishes, clean the house exactly as you wish, but here's the point...IS THE TASK GETTING DONE? OR is your health getting better because of the care of others? Answer: YES, yes, yes!!!

Remember, as you want to help others, so they want to help you! Everyone wants to feel needed. So take the risk and ask. Smile and say thank you; you might be pleasantly surprised.


"The most important thing in life is to learn how

to give out love,and to let it come in." 

~Morrie Schwartz
