For many of us, asking for help, and then receiving it, is not easy. It's certainly part of our North American culture to believe we should be able to handle our own problems and situations.

Additionally, there can be an assumption that others have more important things to worry about in their own lives. We might wonder, "Why would someone want to help me?"
