“She didn't mind extending kindness to others, because she herself relied on the kindness of others.”
— Brene Brown, about her grandmother

Today’s Excerpt:

What can you do to help yourself, or someone else, who is afraid to ask for help?

Watch “Asking For Help Is a Strength, Not a Weakness” (12-min video), a talk by Michele L. Sullivan, a speaker and advisor who was born with a rare form of dwarfism. Because of this, she’s had to ask others for help to get around her whole life.


  • What do you think of the idea that asking for help is a strength, not a weakness?
  • Michele talks about needing to ask for help to get around, and she says that we all need help at times. What do you need help with?

Michele talks about how she needed to think ahead and practice situations where she would ask for help. The truth is, when it comes to needing help, we can all use some practice.
