Yeah, that happened to me just recently.
I realized that by NOT asking for support, I was blocking myself from making strides in progress.
You see, someone reached out to me in a community that I belong to and asked if I was ok, and I first responded by thanking them and sharing that I was processing some trauma that I experienced a few weeks ago and they offered to listen to what happened.
And something unexpected happened… unlike with other people I have shared this story with, I shared ALL of the details. I discovered that I had been HOLDING BACK the critical, dark, awful shit that happened because I was worried about how it would affect other people.
Aye. I know. I know.
The first step toward growth is acknowledging that was I was doing wasn’t working.
