One thing I have never understood is why people shut others out. If you have someone who is supportive, loves you, cares about you and your well being, and on top of that is extremely attractive, why throw that away? Why would you ever decide that you don’t need their help? Ladies and gentlemen, the reason behind this is pride. The person doesn’t want help, they don’t feel like they need anyone, they believe they “got this”. Having their lives together is an accomplishment, but there is nothing wrong with asking for help. My advice to you is to just leave the other person alone. It’s way harder than I’m making it sound but you need to just let them be. You need to understand that you are learning from this experience. You are learning that you cannot help everyone, it’s impossible. I had to teach my two year old cousin, London that lesson because London is like me. I love to help. London saw that there was a situation going on which she did not agree with. London ran up to me, and told me what happened (London is extremely intelligent). I responded to her, saying, “London you can’t control people, you just have to let them do what they want.” Of course she looked at me with a surprised face, but she’s going to learn the lesson early: not everyone wants to be helped. One of my closest friends sent me the picture attached about ego, and I believe it perfectly fits what I am trying to say, though I would like to say that this issue applies to everyone. Pride is not a bad thing, everyone should be proud of who they are, what they do and what they have, but too much pride is toxic for any kind of relationship.
