For some people it feels natural to share and ask for something, to show that they need support, help, care, love. It is unnatural for me; almost impossible. I am in need, but I can neither ask, nor show. What I can do is suffer silently until it becomes too much.
Being a Giver; Being In Need Too

This is hard! I’m sorry you don’t feel able to ask. I used to struggle with this—well, I still do somewhat—but I’ve gradually got better at trying to ask for help. I prefer being the one who helps others. Or the one giving advice. I don’t like being the one who needs help or advice. But this year, with all the challenges with my wife’s ill health have actually helped me get better at asking for and accepting help from others. It’s still not easy though!
