If you’re not used to calling on others when you feel low or lonely, or when you’re stressed or overwhelmed, you’re not the only one. If you’re like a lot of us single working women, you don’t want to bother people. Don’t want to appear needy.
But there’s tons of proof that it’s better for both your immediate sitation and your long-term health to have yourself a team you can call on when the chips aren’t falling your way–and even when they are!
It takes practice to develop the habit of reaching out to those special people. Don’t assume your team knows you need them. Make a point of connecting regularly and always letting them know you appreciate their help.
This is a new practice for me–and I often forget to consult my team. Like yesterday when I got so busy preparing to have a special holiday dinner. Totally forgot to think about connecting with them instead of snacking through the busy-ness.
Well, It’ not new year’s eve but I can resolve today to start reaching out more. Thank God for cell phones that keep your contacts’ info.
What simple thing can you resolve to do today that will enrich your life–and strenthen your connectedness to life?
