Depending on each of our cultures, our upbringing, or our personal beliefs, sometimes it is very difficult to ask for help. We often feel that people look down upon us or think there is something terribly wrong with us. Remember, EVERYBODY has troubles from time to time and needs help.
When we need help we sometimes feel compromised or even humiliated. We may be affected by very real stereotypes, prejudices, or scapegoating.
The lonely feeling that you are the only person with a problem or challenge is the worst. Try to find a friend or support group where you can share your feelings and learn from their experiences how you survive life’s troubles. If there are judgmental people in your life, there are others out there who are kind, compassionate, and understanding.
