Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock
Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?
I am useless at recognising the point I need to ask for help. I do ask, in the end, but often I could have avoided a lot of stress and worry if I had asked for help sooner.
I am often the one others come to for a shoulder to cry on or to share a problem.
I know that I cannot rely purely on myself – I need support and encouragement. Without it I allow worry and concern to take over and that zaps me of all the strength I needed to tackle the problem in the first place!

If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?
This is a thought provoker – because it has made me realise that the charities I give to and the causes I support are not necessarily the ones that I would get behind if I had a chance to be involved.
Many years ago I belonged to a Youth Theatre, we were responsible for organising a charity event (being ambitious 15 – 18 year olds) we tried to get U2 involved and in fairness to them the response we got if it we had asked over a year in advance they would have been involved. In the end it was a much more local event with bands from the town and our sketches and fundraising in between.
We researched homelessness by taking action, working with homeless people in a day centre and talking to homeless about their experiences of being on the streets and the back stories are wide and varied. It was an experience that I will not forget. I think if I had time to throw myself into a cause I would choose to help the homeless.
