Tell Us: When Do You Hate to Ask for Help?

Denise
life-belt-498453_640I regularly ask for help. I'm good about asking my siblings to take my parents to a doctor's appointment if I can't. I'm good about stopping to ask for directions when I'm lost. I'm good about asking for help from volunteers in our community.

But, I still face situations when I know I have to ask for help and I just hate it. For instance, I hate when I have to ask someone to help by stepping in to fill my place--like co-hosting #eldercarechat, a Twitter chat which happens twice a month that I co-founded in 2010. Lately, I haven't been able to attend this chat, which I love. I have a sub for today's chat but I so worry about how often I can't attend either because of a work or caregiving commitment. I hate to ask for help because I think if I ask for help too much then the opportunity to co-host will disappear. In essence, asking for help seems to look like I can't keep my commitment.

What about for you? When do you hate to ask for help? Tell us about it in our comments section, below.
