Are you one of these four kinds of people?
A vast majority of people never ever like being put in scenarios wherein they are feeling helpless and vulnerable. People always like to be in control of the situations they are in so that they can manipulate the conditions to produce outcomes that are favorable to them. However, the sad truth of the matter is that at some point or another, we are all going to need some help every once in a while. None of us are perfect. None of us have the power to be in constant control of every aspect of our lives.
We must be aware that there are certain kinds of people who don’t necessarily deal with this fact all too well. These are the people who don’t like to ask for help even though they badly need it. They are not ones who would petition for another person’s assistance no matter how dire the situation. They would rather keep their troubles and worries to themselves than to let other people know how vulnerable and weak they really are.
Take this scenario: you are forced to bear the emotional trauma of breaking things off with a person you’ve been in a relationship with for a long time. That is an emotionally daunting experience and a lot of people will not be able to cope with that experience on their own. Some people will turn to their friends for distractions and reassurances that things are going to be alright. The truth is that social therapy can be a great way to deal with difficult times. But there are some types of people who are just too shy to ask their friends for help. They don’t want to be a burden to their friends’ lives, and while this may seem like a very selfless and thoughtful act, it can also be potentially destructive. If we are willing to be helpful to the people we care about, we must also understand that they would also be willing to help us in our times of need. This idea of mutual friendship just doesn’t get through to many people and so they would choose to just keep to themselves than to bombard their friends with their worries. They would rather sweep their emotions under a rug rather than express their need for help and support.
These people just need to realize that asking for help isn’t all that bad. No one will think any less of you for asking for help from your best of friends. No one should ever be ashamed of expressing their feelings and emotions. No one should ever be ashamed of sharing their deepest troubles to trusted confidants. No one should ever be made to feel like their friends don’t want to have anything to do with their problems. No one should ever be led to believe that one should only deal with problems alone.
There are just too many people who are too shy to ask other people to take time out of their schedules to be of assistance to them. Some people are afraid of finding out that their friends really don’t have their back. These are perfectly rational and valid fears that a lot of us can have, but they shouldn’t be so strong to discourage us from actually seeking the assistance we need. We cannot let these fears deprive us of the opportunity to ask our friends to hold our hand when we feel like we’re slipping.
There is so much darkness in this cruel world, and one would actually be surprised to find out that a lot of human beings want to be a source of light on this earth. They wouldn’t hesitate one bit to bring happiness, joy, and ease to the lives of other people.
These are the 4 Zodiac signs who are known to be emotionally closed off. They like to keep to themselves and so you never know what demons they are forced to deal with on a daily basis. Make sure to reach out to these people and let them know that it’s okay for them to ask for your help.
Cancer (June 21 July 22)
If you’ve ever been with a Cancer, then you would know that they are very emotional and sensitive beings. However, they are very choosy when it comes to picking friends. They like small social circles, and they will often withdraw into their shell whenever life gets too hard for them to bear.
Virgo (August 23 September 22)

A Scorpio is a very social creature, but it takes a whole lot of time before one can win a Scorpio’s trust. They tend to be very guarded creatures and they don’t like to reveal their vulnerabilities much to other people.
