Key Points from this Episode:

  • Asking for help can be hard, and that’s okay!
  • Helping others feels wonderful, so remember it’s okay to be on both sides of the helping. If we love helping others, it can be a huge blessing to others to let them help us.
  • The bar for getting help and asking for help is way, way, WAY lower than we think it is.
  • Interdependence helps lift everyone involved way farther than independence can.
  • Allowing the interdependent relationships to develop allows everyone to get help even when things aren’t in pure survival, but even have help with the lesser, but still hard times.
  • We have to fight that lie that independence is the end-all be-all. Especially in motherhood.
  • Sometimes we have to be brave and ask for help so we can start cracking down our walls of independence and open the door for them to feel comfortable asking for help from you.
  • In some times of your life, there will be not be as much give and take and you will just need to be served. Know that in another season, you will get to serve when you are capable.
  • When you need A LOT of help, ask a lot of different people so you don’t strain friendships. It’s scary to ask more people, but spread it around when the help that is needed is ongoing.
  • Be specific with what you need help with.
  • Notice what lifts you up and practice doing that more in your daily life.

From the Episode


Patreon is the place where we can come together as mothers and intentionally cultivate growth together. Each month you can gain access to printable worksheets that go along with topics in the podcast to help us slow down and make lasting change – not just be inspired for a few days and then move on. These worksheets are what I’m personally working on and talking about with my closest friends – and I want YOU to join us!

Cultivate your growth intentionally with us through two worksheets a month, a online community, and a monthly group video call to share our “big wins” and things we are still working on.
