Learning how to Need

It’s now the year 5774, and this is what I’m working on!

Do you also have trouble asking for help?  What are your strategies for combating this problem?

This is NOT what Gd intended!

  1. Beautiful video with such an important message. The girls and I watched it together and when you said “Hi Grandma,” Nechama said, “Hi Gama.”
    I have always struggled with the same problem as you (I am also Canadian.) I was so proud of myself this week because I asked a mutual friend of ours (you can probably guess who) to help me take the girls to the park this morning. She came and we had so much fun!

    Thank you for the mini shiur and giving me a lovely lesson during my work break. I struggle greatly with this topic. I am a very take charge type personality. It has always been hard for me to ask for help from anyone. Thank you for the thoughts on the subject.

  3. I totally get where you’re coming from! I’m from Minnesota, and I have the same kind of personality. I come from a long line of “Minnesota nice.” I still struggle with it. I honestly thought I was alone in this. So glad I’m not!

    I have this trait as a daughter of a Holocaust refugee. I used to say, “I’ll do it myself”, said the little red hen. And she did!” was my motto. A challenge for me also.

    A little trouble with your video audio…the timing is off…what your lips are saying don’t match the audio….I have to often lip read to understand videos….do you think it could be remedied on the timing ? Love you….

  6. This touched on so many things i am dealing with right now. Wow! I often feel like my requests should be the smaller portion of my prayer cause He is so amazing and weren’t we created to praise him? I even cringe to request something twice thinking it shows a lack of faith – shouldn’t I wait on his answer? Kind of a Canadian approach huh? I don’t want to inadvertently offend the infinite! I loved your reaction to the beautifully set table. I GET that as one time two ladies I didn’t even know cleaned my kitchen after a thanksgiving feast I had prepared and it just totally blew me away!
