1. A specific situation when someone assisted me was when my cousin tutored me in math. 

A specific situation when I assisted somone else was when I tutored my cousin in U.S. history

A specific situation when I made assisting someone else more important than my own success and happiness was when I helped my friend enroll in a new school, it would be hard to not see her anymore but it would help her succeed.

When someone asks me for assistance I usually feel happpy to oblige.

What usually gets in the way of my asking for help is feeling emberassed, I feel something is hard while others think it is so easy

If I often asked other people for assistance I would feel like I am a bother to them

If I joyfully gave assistance to others I would feel satisfied that I am helping others

If I gratefully accepted assistance from others I would feel happy that I now understand a subject matter

One goal that I could use assistance with today is my math

2. I feel like I am codependent. I like helping people way more than recieving help. I like helping people in any way that I can, it gives me happiness. Usually I help others and forget about my own goals. Its not bad to help but it is bad to forget about your dreams. I will try to be more independent.
