My independent self isn’t good at asking for help, not the least reason being that I often just don’t think to ask. I am good at organizing myself around what I need and need to do, but adding others to the mix is usually outside my interests/capacity/thought process.
I had three instances of feeling like I might pass out while driving yesterday, which came out of the blue, so I am trying to sort that out and figure out how I want to address it. I didn’t have to be out today except for an exercise class, and my mom offered to drive me so that it was one less thing for me to worry about. I gladly accepted, which is new for me – I often turn down offers for help because they don’t fit my paradigm. I am glad to help others when I can, I think it would be good for me to accept help with as much grace.
