Never AgainI will not lie and say that I have never begged in the past because I have. I think that most people have. From these instances I have learned that begging is one of the most demeaning things someone can motivate you into doing. I don't believe that anyone can make you do anything you don't want to do, but they can sure inspire you into doing it, even if you realize it's not the best course of action. I say demeaning because begging usually comes up in instances where one person is attempting to manipulate another. There's a difference between asking someone for something earnestly and begging them for it.
The main reason I have made the personal choice to not beg is because I'm been traumatized by past instances. I cannot count how many times I have begged my mother to not kill herself throughout my life. This isn't the only example I can think of, but it is the most prevalent. If someone is unwilling to do something I have asked of them then I accept that. At this point in my life I realized that I cannot force my will on others, even if my will is for their benefit and to secure their well-being.
