Asking for help is never easy, but don't believe everything you think when you're hurting. Put your heart and life in the hands of our Creator and the people directed to your path. 'You have not because you ask not' is sometimes the issue, but listening is an art. There's many ways to ask but if we are not listening, we might miss the question.
