Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock

Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SELF.

It depends on what I want help with and who is around to ask.

Financial help is one thing I never ask for from individuals.  If it’s offered I’ll probably take it but I’m not going to ask anyone for money – ever!  I don’t know if this is a pride thing or what.  I just don’t like asking for money, even when it’s owed to me.  It is one thing I have been overly generous in giving in the past, but I don’t like to ask for it back, even when I know the person I lent it to has more than enough to not miss what they borrowed.

If it’s help with chores then my son is in the firing line for that, since he’s the only other person here.  And I’ll only ask for help if it’s something I really can’t do myself, or I’m having a bad day with the FMS for example.  My Mum brought me up to know that, “if you want a job done properly, do it yourself!”  And I have to agree with that, since other people never do things the way you would do them yourself.

So I guess the answer to the prompt has to be that, for the most part, I will rely on myself but I will reluctantly ask for help if there’s no other way.
