• Absolutely not.
  • Why are you ready to step in if I'm not loving myself enough???
  • That can go both ways, cuttergirl. Sometimes not asking for help is loving yourself more simply because you are having faith in yourself to solve your own problems. But, when help is truly needed, it's loving yourself to ask for it, yeah.
  • Really good question and well put!! I never thought by not asking for help I don't love myself.....I don't ask for help especially when I need it the most. Guess that says a lot about me.
  • I haven't always, no. But I do love myself now more than ever. It all started with my 'accepting' myself and changing some of my old patterns. I do ask for help when I need it, and find that others are more than willing to provide it.
  • Apparently not...
  • I don't know if it is love or humility to say,"I can't do it alone".I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was willing to do a hand stand bare ass naked in Gimbels window if it would mean a better life.I didn't have to do that .but I did have to take the cotton out of my ears and put it in my mouth and be willing to take suggestions. Life didn't get any better,but I got better.Hang in there Cutter Girl.don't give up before the miracle happens.
  • I don't love my self at all but if i am in serious need of help, i will ask for it.
  • It can be difficult to do so however, if it truly warrants then I will...
  • Most definately
  • I never thought of it that way. No, I guess I don't... I'm too 'proud,' but its more like stubborn. Recently I needed help w/funds due to some medical issues and a lot of expensive testing, and I didn't ask for help when I should have. When it was even offered to me, I turned it away. It's kinda saddening, I guess.
  • For me, it has nothing to do with loving has to do with trusting others. Yes, I trust others (family/friends) enough to ask for help when I need it! :)
  • Such an insightful question!! I didn't love myself for the longest time, but I'm learning to now. It's still a three steps forward, two steps back kind of process, but I find that no change can ever take place through self hate. Self love eases change and that includes asking for help.
  • Asking for help when I need it, has nothing to do with whether or not I love myself.
  • Yes, certainly.
  • No I don't love myself and I never will, but I've asked for help anyway.
