They are those people who don’t ask for help because they either don’t want any help or your kind of help. Maybe they don’t want to seem needy or they don’t trust the quality of your help. Maybe they don’t want to return the favour someday or they worry your help will require socializing that means they will spend more time. Have we become scared to ask for help? Do we fear losing our independence? Are we too proud to ask? Have we always been this way?
