Just tell the fucking truth.
I’m not going to say this again
stop shaming yourself for needing help.
when you ask for help and people help you - you know what happens?
NO ONE WHO CANT AFFORD TO HELP YOU WILL.
It’s as simple as that - people who are mad at you/those helping you are not the people who helped you and likely don’t know what the support means to you.
but don’t fucking shame yourself for needing help and accepting the help that you need.
