It simply involves that you are admitting weakness (regardless, I think it shows bravery too); to push these barriers it helps a lot to know that their "problem" won't be so troubling. So if it helps in this way and helps them get better, I can't think of a reason why one should not ask for help.
Some have it so ingrained in them that things must be done by them alone, that they will allow themselves to suffer great tragic things and refuse help. Good ways to get around this is to NOT TALK ABOUT IT. Just leave food where they can find it, toys where the kids will see them, money in the mailbox. And don't get caught. :-)
Right. There is no shame in accepting a gift that seemingly came from God. :-)
Recognize that everyone needs help in their lifetime, even those who appear strong and brave. It's not a sign of weakness to admit you need help; it's the first step to getting better and closer to where you need to be.
asking for help is definitely a sign of strength and admittance that you need help.
