Hesitate to ask for help, is it your personality?

Some people just have too much pride on themselves, even though they knew that they can't handle that problem alone. They would hesitate to ask for help, even to his friends or family members. A friend of mine is in a similar situation, who is not willing to ask somebody's help. Until one day, his girlfriend spew out his difficult situation, and we really have no idea about it. As friends, we definitely try to help him out. He simply told us, he can deal with it, and he will find a way to straight it out. Although we insisted, we just don't want him to push himself too hard. Are you or anyone you knew also hesitate to ask somebody else for help?

usually I try to make things work out by myself, and it's not because I'm to proud, but because I feel I can handle it. the moment I realise I can;t do a certain thing I ask my family or my friends to help me without any problem

When it comes to money, no. When it comes to something else, yes. So far I am going by with my expenses. My husband, my father and my sisters give me great support so I am lucky there. I try not to bother my family with the kids too often but sometimes it has to happen or I will lose my sanity.

Yes, I do hesitate to ask for help. I know that I can ask, but there are just time when I have a hard time doing this. For some reason or another, this has always been the case. I think it's just that I prefer doing things myself.

There are several such people out there. I had a friend who behaved like that, once in trouble he would keep quiet and kept sweating profusely until we came to help whenever we knew what was his problem. It is not good to keep quiet whenever one is in trouble, it is always good to share your troubles, souls would be saved.

To be frank , i am similar to your buddy in terms of character .Sometimes i am too shy to turn to my friends for a hand when being stuck in some trouble .Although i tried my best to change it ,i can't face to others calmly .Maybe your friend and i are destined to be what we are .Now i don't think there is a need for me to make any change .

It is my personality to ask for help, I first do everything I can to resolve my problems before asking for help. But I think this is counter productive. I know there is nothing wrong if you admit that you can't do it alone.

Yes sometimes I feel hesitate for asking help with a person who really I don’t know well. But I never feel hesitate to asking for help with my friends. I think we can freely ask for help to our friends. And they always ready for helping us.
