Have you ever been so broke you could not afford to buy yourself food to eat,but you are still hanging in there without begging anyone for help because of pride.

I've been pretty broke before, scrounging change in the couch to get a pack of smokes and living off of ramen noodles, but I was not afraid to ask for help. I was more afraid of living on the streets. When you ask for help the worst thing that can happen is that you are in the same situation as before, and if they say yes, then you can take another step forward. There is a time and a place for your pride to shine, but it shouldn't stand in the way of getting help when you need it.
