Many people are averse to asking for help even when they need it. They have this believe that people would look down on them because of their weakness thus they keep quiet. While there are people who will not lift a hand to help others, there are many more who are willing to help. Do not feel discouraged when you find someone who refuses to lend you a hand. Move on to the next person.
The people who have been in difficult situations will always try to help. They will not criticize because they know that tough times come to each one of us at different times. Today you may be up and tomorrow you need someone to pull you out of the mire. Don’t die in your pride when you could get help.
