Asking For Help
It happened so quickly. My hand hit the off key on my computer and it crashed. The computer is not fixable by my techie husband and will need to go to an Apple store on the other side of the ocean. All of this could have been prevented if I would have thought through my actions or if I would have asked for help from my husband sitting right beside me. Instead, I panicked thinking a 1000 pictures were going to download on my computer, and I wouldn’t be able to stop them. Why didn’t I ask for help? Truthfully? I didn’t want to look like I did something stupid. Which is funny since I ended up doing something more stupid. It would have all been prevented if I would have asked for help. Thankfully my mistake only caused me to lose a week’s worth of work and the use of my computer until we get stateside.
- We don’t want to impose on others who are already busy.
- We don’t want to seem weak or “stupid”.
- We don’t want to be rejected or have been rejected in the past.
- We got ourselves in this mess so we need to get out of it on our own.
