I Need Help Sometimes But Won't Ever Ask For It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 415 People

    That's Me

    There are times when I do need help, but I don't run out and ask for it. I'll sit back and work through it somehow. I don't know why, but somehow I just don't want to be though of as needy. So I muddle through ... some how.

    Think About It

    There are days where I am lost to the point Im ready to pull the plug without even second guessing the idea. I should probably just take the risk and contact someone, but then again I dont want to be an annoyance, but than again, again, I' m sure they would prefer I talk to them...

    Please See Me

    I want to tell someone that I cut. That I am depressed and suicidal. But I don't want to be alienated, or pushed away or thought to be crazy. I don't want to disappoint everyone. I don't want to hear what hate would fly out of my mom's mouth, or what disappointment my dad would...

    More Trouble Then It's Worth

    I need help in a lot of areas of my life. I have had offers of help, have even accepted the offers. When the time came that I needed it I was always looked upon like an alien. I refuse to explain myself or justify it and I won't beg. So, forget it. I will struggle and do it...

    Two Words...

    Baby steps =) Thought it's about time that I finally reached out to someone who can actually help me with my dilemma. It feels awkward talking about it, but it's definitely what I need at this moment. Hope everything will turn out just well ;)

    I Have Always Been a Fiercely Independant Person

    I had to grow up way to fast & I am quite sure that this is something that added to this quality in me. I was on my own & completely self sufficient by the time I was seventeen. If I had a problem, I tackled it, head-on. I was use to physical labor & felt that I could...

    No Thank You, I Don't Need Your Help.

    Truth be told I can't always do it on my own, but sometimes my ego gets in the way. That in itself is a major weakness.

    I can't really ask anyone for help with anything most of the time... even the littlest things. I'm just too embarrassed to. I don't want to  tell someone else all my problems and then have them pity me or feel sorry for me. I don't want that. So most of the time I have...
