Yes, I did it!
Talk about Personal Growth
One of my biggest challengers in this life is the simple task of asking for help. I struggled at the mere thought of asking for the slightest bit of assistance. I remember getting a flat tyre on the side of a very steep hill and when someone stopped to ask if they could help me I nearly bit the poor mans ear off.
Hhmmph … Like I needed help … no way, I’ve got this
Independence was my rock, what I could rely even if things didn’t seem right as long as I didn’t have to ask for help I was comfortable. But this wasn’t such a good thing for me when I took it to extreme. I was pregnant with my third baby in just over two years and I had packed the other two children into the car ready to take them to Playgroup. I was the president of the club so I always arrived early to set up but before I could go I needed to go to the toilet. To my horror I had started bleeding and still had a few months to go before the birth was due.
I’ve got this or so I thought.
I put on a few pads to catch the blood and headed back to the car but something didn’t feel right. Could I really go to a session with a dozen or more little ones and their parents in this state? If I didn’t go wouldn’t I be letting them down I was after all the president? What about my kids they loved going there and playing, creating and just having fun, I couldn’t disappoint them. It will be fine, be positive my thoughts told me heart.
You’ve got this but did I?
The blood had seeped through the pad before I got to the car and I raced back for another. No this wasn’t good and all this walking probably isn’t helping. First of all I needed to get the kids to a safe place then I could get myself to the doctors, so I drove them to a neighbour’s place. I has to asked her to take the kids to Playgroup for me and I knew what asking her meant. It meant I had to tell her what was going on. I nearly got away with it, then she asked why.
What was I thinking I didn’t have this.
If I hadn’t of asked for her help I’m not sure what would have happened. We lived nearly an hour out of town and if I drove myself all the way … Who knows but what I do know is that I am glad I asked for help because she laid me down and took over the situation. Thankfully my little girl was fine and this month she is getting married so I have learnt to ask for help but I must admit I don’t do a very good job of it.
However this time I stepped out of my comfort zone and didn’t ask a friend or someone close for help I asked complete strangers on Facebook. I am so pleased that I did that because now I have met new friends and the Personal Growth Expo can go ahead with a dedicated team. Thank you Ladies for your support.
