Default asking for help

This topic came up for discussion at my support group last night and I found it very relevant as I have a huge difficulty doing so - and not just when it comes to when I am in a mental health crisis but when it involves help with tasks. I am wondering others' thoughts on this.

My biggest barricade to doing so is that I often feel I don't deserve help.

I am a very independent spirit but as I have aged I've gotten better asking for help.

Yeah I'm the same here's the reasons why I don't ask for help;

Don't deserve it
Others need it more than I do
I'm wasting time
I'm not as ill as what I think
People will judge me
I'm not worthy of the help
