Many people do cry and ask for help.
It is human but there is a better way. By asking for help because you want to get better is noble.
Crying out for help so that you can get attention is another.
When you answer the call of a person who is asking for more attention than help, it robs you of your time and energy and sometimes money.
It also robs the person of there Personal Power to take action. Which is more damaging than any challenge they are facing in life right now.
Some may think that this is harsh, but it actually one of the most loving things to do for another person, that is, to return the their sense of Personal Power.
