Recently, I wrote a post where I talked about how I never know what to do in certain situations, so I always call people to help me. Now, I'm writing a post about not knowing what to ask for help? It seems contradictory but it isn't.
My husband travels a lot. He is gone for long chunks of time and then home for a good chunk of time. It is hard, but we are making it work by focusing on the positives...more on that in another post. People are always telling me that if I need anything while he is away to just ask. I would love to take people up on their offers, but I don't know what to ask them to do. I mean, what exactly is my responsibility that I shouldn't pass off on others and what is the "extra" that is ok to ask others to help with? Since, I don't know the answer to this question I usually end up doing it all alone.
If you are one of those people who offers to help me, just know that I appreciate your offer, but I honestly do not know what to ask you to do.
