Why do I feel bad asking for help?

Answer from our relationship trained AI Couple Coach:


March 27, 2024

Feeling bad about asking for help can stem from various factors, including cultural norms, past experiences, and personal beliefs about self-reliance and independence. Some individuals may perceive asking for help as a sign of weakness or inadequacy, leading to feelings of shame, guilt, or vulnerability. Additionally, past rejections or negative experiences when seeking assistance may reinforce these beliefs and contribute to reluctance in reaching out for support. Overcoming the reluctance to ask for help often involves challenging and reframing these negative beliefs, recognizing the value of interdependence, and acknowledging that seeking support is a sign of strength, not weakness. Building trust in supportive relationships and practicing self-compassion can also help alleviate feelings of shame or guilt associated with asking for help.
