Really helping or just polite.
I'm not saying that people really don't want to help, I just wonder sometimes if they feel like they have to. I am so used to doing everything by my self that when people ask if they can help I usually say, "No I've got it, thanks." But today I was wondering if they felt bad that I would not let them help? I remember hearing a story, true or not I don't know, about a women who was prego with a third or fourth kid. When the Relief Scocity asked if they could bring in meals, she told the no, she had been cooking for weeks and the freezer was full of meals for her family. The Relief Scocity person told her that she always serves others it was their turn to serve her. I have always HATED asking for help, and sometimes feel that people ask if they can help just to be polite. I don't want to burden them if they really don't want to help. Don't get me wrong it was nice that they asked, I just don't want to be a burden. Is any of this making sense? So what do I do? Anyone have any good answers?
