No Help For Me

Day 84 of 365:

{One Word Prompt}


I have nothing to write about today.  So yeah, may be I need some assistance. The problem is, I dislike seeking out the help of others.  I guess I always figure I don’t anyone else’s help because I can take of myself….

got my own back

The problem is, I’ve had trouble figuring out that it doesn’t have to be that way.  I don’t have to have my own back.  I have friends.  Sisters.  Parents.  The Hubby.  Fellow writer friends.  Fellow bloggers.  The list goes on and on.

But still, requesting help is something I struggle with.


I can’t find words to write today.  So I go to the Daily Post Word Prompt page to see if the today’s topic will lend me a hand and give me some inspiration.

What do I find?  The suggestion to “write a post about the word ‘help.'”  

Well meaning I’m sure, but at the same time – are you kidding me?

Absolutely no help at all!



An Eternally Struggling Writer,

  1. Think of it like this…you can be independent doing things on your own, but know that it is okay to ask for help. Friends like helping friends. If someone asked you for help would you be put out? I bet not, I bet you are glad they asked. So flip it, don’t you think your friends would love to have your back for you if you asked them? Life is meant to do in numbers not alone. Help is there for the asking, for anyone. Hope this uh….helped:) At least give you another way to think about it. Blessings!

    1. LOVE this. 🙂 You know, the older I get, the easier it has become to admit that I do need help here and there. And it is always humbling to learn that I don’t have to go it alone. Age and wisdom: a wonderful combination. Thank you for your kind words and support. They mean so much to me. 🙂
