Asking For Help is Humiliating

Asking for help is humiliating, because we have been conditioned to believe that we can all be all-powerful. And also, because we have to pay for the aid, a price to which it provides.
They tell us that we must succeed, win in sports, in literary competitions, in examinations, in wars. That is why we are so ignorant that we believe it. We believe that we are like gods, capable of achieving everything we set ourselves.
But when we realize that we are vulgar, vulnerable human beings, it scares us. Because in that ignorance we believe that we are the only ones who have problems and need help from others. So the problem is fed back, creating a loop, where you do not see the output.

Pedir ayuda es humillante, porque nos han condicionado para creer que todos podemos ser todopoderosos. Y también, porque hay que pagar por la ayuda, un precio al que nos la proporciona.

Nos dicen que hemos de triunfar, vencer en los deportes, en las competiciones literarias, en los exámenes, en las guerras. Por eso, somos tan ignorantes que nos lo creemos. Creemos que somos como dioses, capaces de conseguir todo lo que nos proponemos.

Pero cuando nos damos cuenta que somos vulgares, vulnerables seres humanos, nos espanta. Porque en esa ignorancia nos creemos que somos los únicos que tenemos problemas y necesitamos ayuda de los demás. Por lo que el problema se retroalimenta, creando un bucle, donde no se ve la salida.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
