I think I am too independent sometimes. I have a really hard time admitting that I need help, especially when it comes to being emotional about things. I had a crying jag just recently and it was all I could do to make myself call my friend Heather. I was so glad that I did but it also made me realize that most times I don't call anyone. It's hard for me.
I don't know how to get better about it but maybe that's something I need to learn this year. I'm good at asking for help DOING things, like moving boxes or fixing house stuff I can't do. I just feel like I never know what to say, or that whoever I call will be appalled by whatever stupid little thing it is that's set me off. I also feel like I knew what I was getting into with this and I shouldn't complain. And yes, I know anyone who knows me would tell me that I'm being ridiculous and to just call...so maybe the next time you hear a sniffle on the end of a phone call, it'll be me.
