Ask for Help When Life Gets Crunchy

Brave hearts battling invisible illness…

We see you. We hear you. We’re listening.

Ask for help.

So much shame has been written in our minds around the concept of needing help. Particularly, the American (and other countries as well) ideal of independence. Independent nation fighting for freedom. Independent people struggling for connection.

Don’t let the national narrative define your individual options. You are bolder, braver, bigger than that. You can reach out and still have your independence. You can believe in freedom and still be dependent.

Speak up. Speak out. Specifically, get out your phone and send a text to someone with your truth… I’m lost. I’m hurting. I’m alone. I’m lonely. I’m hungry. I’m exhausted. Pick one or all of the above.

Then allow yourself to receive… love, compassion, kindness, understanding, care.

And understand it may not always be there. That’s okay too. In the reaching, you will call to you the ones who can walk with you through this season.
