Stubborn?

I have a bad habit of refusing to ask for help when I need it. People tell me it is because I am stubborn but i disagree for the most part. I think I avoid asking for help because I don't want to burden anybody with my problems. But there is a part that avoids asking because I don't want to feel like I owe anybody anything. It has been my experience that when somebody helps you, they automatically feel that at that point they have the run of the show. I am now working on that though and hopefully I will learn to be able to reach out and not feel that I am carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders :)

Well being let down is just a part of life lol I just need to get past the fear of it and understand that the bad comes with the good. How to do that is beyond me but Im sure theres a way!

Friends don't hold something over your head because they helped you out. I am the same way. I don't ask for help. It is mostly because when I have I either get turned down or let down. I don't ask then if I get it that's great if not well I was planning to do it by myself to start with. So then I can't be disappointed. It would be nice to have help sometimes. I hope you suceed and never be let down. Good Luck
