DeDe: Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help!

Oh Dog! DeDe here with another tip to make you look and feel your best!

This week’s tip: Ask for support when you need it.

Attractive people ask others for help when they need it

Last night as we were turning in for the night, strong storms moved through the area. I was afraid, so I lay beside the side of the bed Jen was on. She comforted me by petting my head, and I felt better.

Some humans are reluctant to ask for help when they need it. I know, I live with one.

But when we ask others for help and support, we endear ourselves to them. That is an attractive quality.

Now don’t confuse that with people who use others. Using others is absolutely not attractive.

The next time you need some help with a task at work, or perhaps a ride to the station, go ahead and ask someone for help. You never know the beauty that will be created by the bonds of support.

When Bubba needs a soft place to lay, I let him use my bed.

And remember to never leave home without this essential beauty product- a smile!

  1. Hi DeDe! *waving* my mom says that when she needs some help, she often hesitates to ask someone because she thinks it might disturb them……but like you said asking others for help and suppor might be an attractive quality.
    I’ll let her try when she needs some help next time! Have a good Sunday, DeDe! πŸ™‚

  2. DeDe, I’m just like Jen. First, I’m afraid of being rejected. Second, I’m afraid of being rejected, and third, I always think I could go it alone.

    i might just being inspired to take your advice.

    1. I will have to do you like I do Jen and remind you that the worst that could happen is they say no, then you’re right back where you started from, right? No loss there.

  3. I am learning how to ask Mom and Dad when I need them to touch me so I feel loved and safe…it is a big deal that I am starting to do this more and more. Every time I approach Mom at her desk, she stops whatever she is doing to see what I need. I don’t ask often…but because she started responding right away…I am learning it is OK to ask…thank DeDe for such pawsome advice

  4. Great advice, DeDe! You would be surprised at how much folks want to be helpful. You just have to ask!

  5. Excellent advice and a subject I struggle with..i have always found it hard to ask for help but I think I am getting better at it πŸ™‚ Have a great day sweet DeDe πŸ™‚ hugs Fozziemum xx

  6. This is great advice, DeDe!! When we don’t ask for help, it just adds frustration to our lives and that can easily show in one’s face and demeanor…not an attractive quality!
