Why It's Okay to Ask for Help



Help
hɛlp/
noun
noun: help
1.
the action of helping someone to do something.

"I asked for help from my neighbours""

exclamation
exclamation: help
1.
used as an appeal for urgent assistance.

"Help! I'm drowning!"

Or maybe: "Help! I'm dying!"

I'm not sure if it's always been this way - in which case, this is worse than I thought - but there seems to be a trend lately of saying, "People cannot help you. People will not help you. The only person who can save you is yourself."
And let me tell you, that is complete bullshit.

Why It's Okay to Say "I'm Not Okay."



I used to be this positive, radiant person, you know? I kept a gratitude journal. I read books on positivity. I wore bright colours and put on makeup even on the bad days. I cheered people up. 

I used to be that girl. 

I'm not her anymore.
