Every one of us needs help at one time or the other in life. Some may require financial, moral ,emotional support etc.i have had people whose main request have always been financial and some that always have a problem with their relationships. it became a concern to me when I consider that I hardly make myself a burden on others but try the best I can to help when I can. When you consider your needs for assistance, what kind of help do you often require from people close to you?

I usually need to vent once in a while, and need someone to listen to me without judging what I say or giving advice! Other times, I have needed help with transportation and clothing, food and other necessities. I usually offer a trade, or barter, by offering to help the other person with something that they need! I have offered cleaning and babysitting as well as cooking in exchange for rides to the store.

That is a great way to do things you know at least they know you are not interested in just getting things for free,i think i like that they owe you nothing and you dont owe them anything.I think its better that way because you are no liability to anyone,i like the way you handle that

The only thing I have ever wanted from people was emotional support. I never ask anyone for anything. I try to help myself the best I can in my life. I don't want to feel like a burden to anyone. Alot of people come to me for all kinds of things though. I do my best for them if possible, but sometimes I feel like I am being used because they never offer me anything back.
