I have always been a very independent person. I though that asking for help was a sign of weakness. That is why I have always tried to do things on my own. However, I have recently learned that there is nothing wrong with asking for help when you need. In fact, asking for help can ensure that you keep your sanity.
I was working a double shift, and I really needed to go to the store and get some porous paving materials. I knew that I probably would not make it to the store in time, so I asked one of the my friends to run to the store and get the materials for me. I felt guilty about it at first, but she ensured me that she did not mind helping me. She also told me that I should ask any time that I need help.
