The one thing women don’t seem to do enough of is ask for help. We tend to want to take everything on our own. (“I am woman hear me roar.”) We feel that it shows weakness if we can’t do everything ourselves.
So when you are struggling, you won’t ask for help. You’ll say to yourself, “If they wanted to help they would offer.” But if they don’t know you need help, they won’t offer either. It’s not their job to look out for you and know when you need help. It’s yours. So speak up when it gets too heavy. It’s okay!
