If not, here's an article that provides an insightful perspective:
I'm paraphrasing, but the article states that seven out of 10 people admit they don't ask for help when they need it. I'm amazed by that number but not surprised. I used to be one of those seven. I was too proud to ask for help, at one time. I wanted to be self-sufficient. I didn't want to appear to be needy or incapable. The article tells a good story about why asking for help is not only good for you but can be a smart thing to do. Then, the author shares the reasons why we don't ask for help and how to overcome the unwillingness and free ourselves up to the gift.
Do you have a story to share about a moment when you recall needing help but refusing to ask for it? Does this article teach you something you didn't know before?
