Now is Always the Right Time to Ask for Help

Now is Always the Right Time to Ask for Help

One of the biggest issues in recovery is the fear of asking for help. There are many others out there further down the pipeline who can offer positive support when you need it most. Even if you are struggling and feel alone, rest assured there are people out there who get it, and get your struggle. Now is always the right time to ask for help.

Fighting Back

Fear can take over your life if you let it. The fear of being found out, of admitting what you’ve done, of asking for help can prevent you from seeking the support you need. If you humble yourself to stand in front of those you care about and ask for help, you might just find they’ve been waiting with open arms for you all along. Stepping up and expressing vulnerability can also put supporters into your corner. Fear and pride often prevent you from seeking the necessary support for fear of being found weak. Stepping up and expressing your vulnerability not only gains respect, it puts supporters into your corner. Reaching out means you’re human and need help. It does not mean you are weak.

Why Asking Matters

Asking for help matters in many ways because it shows you are willing to put your own self image aside and seek support. You are only human. Following so much destruction, it can be hard to feel powerless and overwhelmed. It is often easier to let emotions paralyze you into not doing anything. If you rely on drugs and alcohol to numb out, you will never step fully into yourself and will keep playing it small rather than asking for help and getting what you need. Reaching out helps because:

  • It is a constructive way to dismantle the toxic hold addiction has on you
  • You finally let go of fear and admit the need for help
  • Maybe you relied on drugs and alcohol to help you escape but now you have a choice to be healthy
  • New connections can be made by asking for help and voicing your vulnerability, especially in a safe space
