"As people, there is something very healthy about finding support from others during difficult times. I needed it for my own healing." - Beth Moore
Early on in my journey I was very hesitant asking for help. Fearing my vulnerability would cause more pain than not. Being laughed at and looked upon as appearing emotionally weak. Having in the back of my mind my father's words to "suck it up."
Grant it I knew enough to seek counseling for help for what I considered "major" issues. But, sharing what "I" thought was not important such as, struggling physically or a slight word from someone which hurt me, I would not not mentioned or bother sharing. Having the hurt fester inside me. Continually believing I deserved it.
As I became more free, I became less resistant in sharing. I needed the "validation" that I am worth listening to and caring about.
I am still a work in progress. Having set-backs which leads to my sensitivity. My 'irrational thinkin' can still hinder me. Having me on a wild chase in my mind and emotions for days. Incapacitating me. Literally. Cannot eat because of worry and doubt, etc. Although I am a bit better, I still struggle in this area. The "irrational fear" grips me hard still.
Agreeing with Beth's statement, it is always good to have the support and validation from others that what I am going through is okay.
