Don’t Be Afraid to Say I Don’t Know
Growing up my mother took pride in completing all of the housework and cooking because it comforted her. Living in a spotless house and having clean counters was the badge of honor that my mother needed to feel accomplished. She never taught my sister or me how to cook or clean. When I moved out I was clueless but instead of admitting defeat I asked for help. My best friend’s mother taught me how to accomplish simple tasks around the house and I read a lot of self help books and articles on how to do the chores I needed to complete. Once I became a mother, I realized the other things my mother never taught me but instead of waving the white flag I decided to forge forward.
When you don’t know something, be brave enough to raise your hand and ask for help. Seize the opportunity to learn and don’t allow anything to take you down.
