Yes, I know exactly how that goes. You're always the helper, not the helpee. You feel it's a sign of weakness that you can't do it all - and all by yourself. You don't want anyone to even know that you need some help. Oh, yes, that's how so many of us feel - and it's so hard to change that. But as much as we feel good doing something for others, so do they when they get to do something for us. I hope you can find that courage to open up to someone and ask for even a small favor. It's like opening the door a tiny crack to see who's there. When you see it's a friend, you open the door wider and invite them in. Good luck. I'll be waiting to hear about your birthday tomorrow!
