ADMITTING MY BIGGEST WEAKNESS

So, its come to my attention that getting back into the blogging game again can be quite cathartic and can help you get a lot off your chest. 

Following a couple of tweaks and changes at work recently, its become increasingly obvious that i need to work on a big weakness of mine and that is finding it extremely hard to ask for help.

Its a thing that has come up a lot during my life and its not something that i think i’ll ever get away from, during any work or task i always take it 100% upon myself, its not like i’ve ever had it drilled into me by anyone that its weak to ask for help in anything, i feel like i just take responsibility for it, maybe its because i’ve never felt like i have a team around me in any working environment and always felt like the lone wolf?

I feel the whole ‘lone wolf’ thing comes from feeling theres only me that i can rely on barring obviously parents and brothers but theres no-one i’ve ever felt that isn’t blood that i could fully trust or as mentioned rely on.

So i ask, how have people built trust or the feeling of being able to rely on someone that isn’t blood?

Let me know.

I’ve got the same challenge. Asking for help isn’t my thing either. Most of the time it’s okay, but sometimes I really do need to ask!

It is tough to ask for help! I rarely do it, but sometimes I’ve had to. Just do it, and if the people say no, then that’s that.

Admitting your biggest weakness is the first step to overcome it and improve. I also find it a bit hard to ask for help at time!

I too have a hard time asking for help. I am good at giving help but not receiving it.

recognizing the problem was step one. Start by delegating small tasks and work up from there. Baby steps

It’s honestly hard to count on other people. I’m a bit of a control freak and not because I want to be, but because I feel like I need to be. It’s a learned skill, that’s for sure. What I’ve learned is that even though people may do things in a different way from me, it’s not necessarily wrong and I have to let people help. I have to work on the asking for help thing every day.

It’s really tough to accept things when it comes to ourselves. But I guess It’s a good thing to accept our weakness to over come from the situations that we are living. I know its hard but its worth.

Another great and true article. Loved this kind of post, where it remind us that we must accept or admit our mistakes or wrong doing. This can lead us to be a better next time.

Admitting your weakness to me is a trait of great strength. I’m someone who’s quite reluctant to ask for help but I am slowly getting there

Have you considered joining a support group in your area? It’s a great way to meet new people 🙂 You are already being strong by sharing your biggest weakness!

I try to never ask for help but if I have to, because of my back surgery and I can’t lift, move furniture to clean, etc, I only ask family. I’ve never considered asking someone who isn’t family before but there is a couple of people in my neighborhood who often do things without my asking. Like my elderly neighbor who goes around every trash day and takes all of the single ladies trash can to the road. He’s sweet to include me.

I suffer from the same weakness. It’s hard to seem vulnerable.

Honestly sometimes you have to take a leap of faith. Yes you can do your research and all that but you just never know. Don’t let that stop you from seeking help.

Honestly, I have no idea! This is one of my biggest weaknesses as well and it stems from childhood. So, if you find out the answer, please let me know.

I’m adopted and didn’t meet a soul related to me by blood until I had my first child in my twenties, so the idea that it takes blood to build trust is completely alien to me. I built trust with people over time. It’s the people who always have your back, and who are there for you no matter what. It’s the people who you open your heart to, because if you truly want someone to trust you, you have to trust them, too. I met my birth family about ten years ago, and now I would trust my sister with my life, so I understand that blood does hold some tie I don’t completely understand, but blood didn’t build the strong bonds I have with my adoptive family or the lifelong friends I have now.

Recognizing that we have our weaknesses is good in a way that we acknowledge our flaws. Next thing to do is work on to fight that weaknesss and make it work to our advantage.

It is hard to rely on someone who isn’t blood, and sometimes even hard to rely on them when they ARE blood!

Can totally understand your feelings. Been there but I think it is ok once or twice to ask for help when you absolutely need someone.
