Q-Do you find it difficult to ask for help?
A-I have always been self-sufficient, and realized ages ago that if I wanted the job done right, I would have to do it myself. So yes, I do find it VERY difficult to ask for help. I have a lot of pride, and I don’t like to show my cards. I hold them close and portray the illusion that all is well in my world. When you show signs of weakness, that’s when the predators close in.
But you can only go so far down before you have no other option but to reach out to others. I have had a handful of people willing to help out when times have gotten hard, but this is always my last resort; when all other options have been exhausted. I have never wanted to be a burden on anyone!
How about you? Do you find it difficult to ask others for help?
