Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock

Standard

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

I will admit it is hard for me to ask for help even when I really need it. I am not really sure why. I think somewhere deep inside it feels like failure to me. I know the person that I am asking for help will think nothing less of me if I ask, but yet I don’t. I have gotten in trouble in the past for not asking for help when I needed and I am learning to ask when I do need help.

Being able to rely on myself as made me a stronger person, I think… It has given me the strength to figure things out for myself. After all I am a single mother and my son is only able to rely on me. If I fail so does he. I need to be able to give him the tools to survive in the world and he is looking at me to teach him everything he knows. While there are things I can work on and hope to get better at over time I am positive that my son will grow up to be a well around person.

Inspired by the Daily Prompt.
