     I often laugh to myself about people who are not as independent as I am, but really the joke is on me. Even when its admirable to be able to do everything one's self , it is just as important to be able to ask others for help. This is something that is difficult for me and I know that it takes patience as well. Which brings me back to why I like to do things by myself. The problem is that as much as I would not like to admit it, I can't do EVERYTHING and thus there are times that I must ask for help from others. Then again, one is still an independent person even if one needs help from others every so often.

I don't like owing people anything so it's hard for me to ask for help sometimes too.

It is really hard when one considers herself to be indepnedant to reach out for help. It feels weak...but I always have to remind myself that we are not meant to live alone, not meant to be able to do everything...I know what I am capable of and what I am not..and when you need it...your friends are more than happy to step fact i bet they are waiting for the opportunity to do so.

Think of your independence as an undeserved gift from G_d, that He gave to you because He wants you to do acts of kindness for your fellow Jews.

If G_d sees that you have an arrogant attitude because of your independence, then He may decide to help you by taking away the cause of your arrogant attitude.
