We all have things in our life that need to be resolved.  Some we have full knowledge of and choose them as part of a life plan.  Examples of this are a car payment, mortgage payment, credit cards, and so on.  These unresolved areas are chosen, in fact, we have to work just to get them.  We can grasp the idea that resolve of the mortgage/car payment/credit card debt is not available for a few months, a few years, or a few decades and we are not overwhelmed by it. 

Other areas are not so simple; especially if they are not chosen intentionally, or involve our emotions.  Those areas are the ones that get us feeling overwhelmed.  They include a dispute with our boss, a disagreement with our landlord, a parenting decision we can’t seem to agree on, or a decision to go our separate ways when the “how to separate” part is what we can’t agree on. Every single one of us has experienced at least one, if not all, of these examples.

Taking the step of asking for help is often our best chance at reaching Resolve.

The question becomes; when should you ask for help? (And of course; who do you ask?…Ask Me!) I’ve worked closely, and in a variety of scenarios, with a wonderful woman by the name of Carol Thomas.  She helped me find the answer to when we should ask for help.  The answer- When ever you feel overwhelmed. This will be most common if we have emotions involved in what’s going on, which of course, includes just feeling anger. That’s when we are best serving ourselves, and anyone else involved, by going to a neutral person with the situation.
