What is the problem with self-sufficiency? Don’t get me wrong. I would NEVER want to be a leach on society. However, does our pride and lack of humility stop us from asking for help? And how does this affect our wealth & receiving of money? For most of middle class America, self-sufficiency was demanded of us. Self-Sufficiency is the ultimate goal! Or so I thought. We look at “poor people” who ask for handouts as a strain on society. Last Friday, I was having coffee downtown with a colleague, when a jobless person approached us. All I had was a toonie on me. I passed it to him. When I thought about that transaction, I could only think that he had more guts than I ever would TO ASK for something I wanted or needed. I, no doubt, have to much pride to ask for help! (sound familiar?!?!) And for most of us stuck in complacency land, aka. middle-comfy-class, with our houses, portfolios and internet connections, we probably either feel a) guilty for asking for more b) shame in asking for more c) fear – that in asking for more we will be struck by lightning, because we are greedy, ungrateful bastards who strut around like we own the place Then there is my old friend, OBLIGATION.

Hence the go-to-college-get-a-good-job-pass-go-collect-$200 lifestyle that we, the middle class, were taught. We value hard work. We value self-sufficiency. Were there some flaws in this? When did “asking for help” become a bad thing? Many people
