    This Is Where..

    This is where my independence comes into play.  I like ot figure things out on my own.  That is what I know will truly push myself to utilize my mind and my brain.  So I truly hate asking for help.  But the other part of it is this, "I don't think I know how...

    Makes Me Feel Stupid

    I don't like to ask for help unless I absolutely have to. I like to prove to myself and others that I can do something on my own.For example if something is broken I will always try to tinker with it for a while to see if I can repair it. Then if I realize I've tried everything I...

    Scared To

    I guess for me asking for anyone to help me is a weakness.. I am scared that if I tell someone that I need help that they will see it as a sign of weakness. I don't want to be seen as a needy person..

    I Am In No Compitition

    I am in no competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in anyway shape or form. I just aim to improve to be better than I was before.

    I Don't....

    I do not like asking for help, No matter what it is for. My Left arm, could be falling off, and I would still say "im fine" or "no, i'll be okay" its just my personalitly. I have always been told, that if I ask for help, that I am weak, and I guess, that is something that has...

    I Hate It

    i would rather take double the time and figure it out by myself than ask someone for help. recently i have been asking for help to certain people with life situations and it has helped so much lol so i guess asking for help can be beneficial sometimes.

    Hate It!

    I didn't get help from my parents when I had questions as a kid, I had to figure things out for myself. Help with homework? Yeah, right. When I became an adult I found I had a hard time asking for help in any area of my life which still holds true today. I'm...

    But now I need it. Just someone to listen I

    guess, I don't really know. I had a moral dilemma two nights ago. A friends cousin hit on me. I absolutely reveled in the attention. But he began to make me feel uncomfortable. He made a move on me and I'm terrified to tell my boyfriend. Like after he propositioned me I...

    I Hate It

    I either ask for help and get help and feel very guilty about it. Or I ask for help, don't get help and feel very very ashamed. Seems like when I do screw up my nerve, something bad happens. I just can't do it right. so i gave up on it. I hate being in a place where I even have...

    Why can't I just let him help me?

    Sometimes when I feel this horrible I just push him away and I don't want to. I want him to be here with me and I don't know how to ask for help because I've dealt with everything alone for so long. I don't want to trap him or make him feel obligated to deal with me at my worst...

    Due to my independent nature it's difficult

    for me to reach out for help. I found out that you have to depend on yourself, because people with good intentions tend to not want to really help when it comes down to it. I like to figure out things on my own, that's how I learn. When people tell me how to do a certain task, I...

    My Lips Won't Move To Even Ask For It

    Or my brain won't even consider it. I'm TOO stubborn and most likely prideful when asking for help. You see the reason being is that a lot of times I've asked for help :in the past: and received it BUT then the person wanted something in return. Sometimes, I couldn't cater to...

    "figure It Out On Your Own"

    It's not that Im too proud, it's just that my family always admonished me for not knowing something or not being able to do something on my own. When I asked a question the answer I always got back was "Figure it out " or "You're always on the internet so look it...

    But I need it tonight ,

    as I try to sleep but feel my tears flowing...I miss him so much. I am so sad and broken tonight. I don't wish it never happened. I just wish the hurt would stop. I wish I could live with happiness. I just want to turn the page. I never thought I would be this person.
