Something I have found difficult through life is asking for help. I don’t do it often. I like to think of myself as independent and self-relient. Clearly, that is not true. I fail at being independent in a lot of circumstances.
It doesn’t quite make sense because I’m a helper. I like helping people and talking about their problems. I generally enjoy listening (if I’m up for it that is) to what they have to say and help them work through things. But I have always found it hard for me to ask for help.
Is that a common failing in people? Or does that mean I simply have trust issues?
