Asking for help may sound like a simple thing to do when you find yourself in a tough situation, but it can also be one of the hardest things to do. I know that I myself am a very proud person. I must probably have failed at the same thing at least ten times before I would ask for help. But that is just because I am a stubborn person who will always try and do something myself first.
There is no shame in asking for help. If a situation becomes too much to handle, it is okay to ask someone for help. It is okay to admit that you need help and it does not mean that you are a failure or that you are not a competent and capable person. Everyone needs help at one point or another. So do not let anyone make you feel bad or unworthy just because you are asking for help.
