I wish I may, I wish I might...

Yesterday I was down-and-out thanks to a migraine, which brought about two of my least favorite things in the world - head pain and nausea.  I had planned to go into work a little late after taking meds, but the pain did not subside and I ended up with my face under my pillows and sleep the only thing that made it bearable.  I can't imagine how people who get migraines all the time deal.  It's awful.

In brighter news, I'm feeling better today and it's Wishcasting Wednesday.  Ever since I started this journey with my fellow wishcasters, I always enjoy Wednesdays, even when it coincides with therapy.  Especially when it coincides as I seem better capable of discovering better truths about myself.

Today Jamie asks:



courtesy of we heart it

My answer this week is simple and yet probably one of the hardest things for me to do.  I wish to be better at asking for help.  For some reason, I always feel like I have to take on everything by myself, but then I get indignant and frustrated when I feel like I'm drowning.  I irrationally expect people to just know that I need help rather than ask for it.

I'm trying to get better at it.  I'm learning that it's not some blight on my character to need assistance, but some times it's hard to remember that.

It's good to remember that even wishing is asking for help.

As you wish for yourself, I wish also for you.

It's okay to let go and ask for help. You might find that people will be thrilled to provide help to you. :-) As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also.

It is so much easier to ask for help of someone if we know they will also ask us for help. By asking others for help, you will also be helping them. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

The image you chose is absolutely perfect! As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also. I know exactly what you mean about expecting other people to just know what you need. I have been doing that forever. I love these exercises like wishcasting wednesday because they're helping me get clear with myself on what exactly I need and want in the first place. I've always found it very difficult to pin these things down, only being sure about what I DON'T want. And I'm certain this is the greatest obstacle to my actually receiving.

I can so relate to this wish! It is hard but so rewarding when you do ask and get help. ;-) As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.

oh my gosh...ok, there must be an epidemic out there! Seems more of us than not have (or had) this struggle!

You added something so important, that I *know* but didn't acknowledge myself: the resentment part. Whoa! That's HUGE, girl! Thank you for being honest about that...it helps me to be honest about it as well!!

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well! ASK!!!! :)

Oh I hear you! I am so bad at that as well. I hope we both find a way to being OK with asking for help. I also hope migraines stay away. They suck!

DonnaOnTheBeach said...

Yep, I'm working on it too! Lol. We'll get help to get help together! As you wish for yourself, I wholeheartedly wish for you also! xx

What a fantastic request wish!! It is such a challenge and risk to ask for help, yet I have found over and over again, people love being able to help.

And yes, get a massage after... you will love it!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!
