As women we often feel the need to do everything: take care of others, nurture, cook, be thin, be beautiful, have a career, launch a business, really: be superwomen and that’s really tiring - especially if you don’t ask for help.
This past month, wearing a cast, taught me a lot, first off:
It made me stop and really ask for help. Practical help. Something as simple as opening a bottle of water or washing my hair - I had to ask for help- and it was not easy.
Wearing this cast made me realise how hard I find it to ask for help, to show & expose my vulnerability and “weakness”, seeing and feeling it as a lack of independence.
And so today, as we celebrate International Women’s Day - I not only celebrate our strengths, but our weaknesses- our vulnerabilities.
Show them. Wear them with pride. Ask for help. It feels good!
A problem shared is a problem halved, a joy shared is a joy doubled, is very true and real.
Lend a helping hand and ask for one in return.
Thank you @skylightchaser for taking care of me...
(and of course my amazing mamasita @marieblanche11 )
Happy International Women’s Day- to all of us.
Let’s stop trying to be superhuman, take a moment to #breathe, and when you feel you can’t - say out loud: can you help me?
Life lessons learned from wearing a cast :))
