Learn to breathe in help

It’s a scary moment when you decide to bring someone into your dream. 

Because as much as you value their support, part of you is afraid to burden them with your desires and overwhelm them with your anxieties and disrupt the economy of the relationship by constantly injecting your dream into every conversation. 

And that’s a normal fear. Nobody wants to be a monopolizer. Nobody wants to have a poor division of relational labor. That’s where resentment lives. 

But success never comes unassisted. And if you have any intention of turning your dream into a reality, you have to breathe in help. You have to ask people to be there for you. 

The surprising part is, people actually love it. Especially the ones closest to you. They crave nothing more than the opportunity to show up for someone they care about. That human longing to be useful, to be asked, to feel necessary to at least one other person in the world, it runs deeper than anything else. 

Besides, at least you’re fortunate enough to have someone in your life to share your dream with. Imagine not having someone at all. Or worse yet, having someone, but it’s someone who doesn’t give a shit about your dream. 

The point is, if you’re fortunate enough to have a savings account of human healing, don’t feel guilty about making a withdrawal request. 

Just make sure to keep an eye on the balance. 


Can a dream have more than one owner?
