Ask For Help

Stress can overwhelm you at any time in your life.  But when you recognize it when it is happening, you can avoid freezing your energy to contain your pain.

I was reminded of this recently when a family member became gravely ill. Of course, I felt my own personal stress, but the overwhelming stress came from my need and ability to support other family members who were more directly impacted by the situation.

I thoroughly depleted my energy when I gave them the help they needed.

At other times in my life I might have been stoic and buried my own pain so that I could be there for others. I could have kept functioning but frozen my energy. However, understanding the process of the damage frozen energy can inflict I did something different.

Since my resources were depleted, I called on my good friends who knew nothing about the situation and asked for their emotional (energetic) support.

I am blessed with friends who are loving and caring and were more than happy to listen and offer me what I needed–and offer prayers for the ill family member as well.

Fortunately, our worst fears were not realized. He has recovered sufficiently to be with us a while longer. And I am left with gratitude instead of frozen energy.
