The Fear of Asking for Help and How to Overcome It
Should you feel embarrassed asking for help, or proud that you take steps to improve your situation by asking for assistance?
I saw what I felt was a heartwarming video the other day, about kids helping a classmate going through tough times. They emphasized that he did so much for them, so they wanted to do something for him. As they knew he needed new shoes and clothes, they gave that to him.
While I’m not sure why this was filmed — and it struck me that it could be for egotistical reasons — it still warmed my heart. Imagine if every classroom around the world was a place where a) you felt free to share your troubles b) people banded together to help you when you did.
