Why is it that I don't like to ask for help?

I am so stubborn, I want to do everything myself, I am a little OCD too when it comes to having stuff done my way, but I have two kids under 2 and I can't ask for help and if someone offers I get annoyed and refuse them. I think I am a control freak. How do I get rid of this?

  • I'm the same way! I have to have things a certain way for a reason. It may not make sense to other people, but it makes sense to me. I don't know how to fix it either. I don't want to fix it, actually... because I like having things a certain way for a reason! LOL

  • I guess with anything, you need to pick your battles. is it the END of the world if your counter isn't wiped the way you wanted or had to RE wipe it?? no but the offer of help is nice, its still clean, and when and if you have time, you can REdo it the way you want.. I stopped my tendancies of hoarding!! by starting to throw my shit away
