Reaching out to someone can often be a hard thing to do. You may be a solitary person and have relied only on yourself for so long that you don’t know how to ask for help. Perhaps you’re scared of rejection, it does happen and what do you do then when you’re knocked further back into your shell? Maybe you’re trying to help someone else by offering yourself but fear that they may take offence. It takes quite a bit of courage to put yourself out there, some people may not realise just how hard it is but we all need someone. Even if you do prefer your own company or are too proud to ask for help when you so desperately need it, life in solitude is a lonely place.
