As a new (ish) mom I have developed a special appreciation for the word “helping.”
In our society it seems we do a lot to make sure our kids are independent. Unfortunately I think this creates problems later on in life, especially for women, because it creates people who are afraid to ask for help.
Asking for help has somehow become seen as a sign of weakness. A vulnerability that needs to be covered up. How can we possibly be perfect if we have to ask for help?
