It can be difficult to ask for help; it's especially difficult if you
have a significant part of your self-image tied up in being the helper
instead of the helped.

But part of being part of a society is (loosely speaking) collecting
the karma you are owed - including learning to accept it, which is hard
when it's negative but perhaps even harder when it's positive.

Maybe try thinking of this as part of your life lesson: to learn to
accept, even ask for, help when you truly do need it.
