Asking for help is one thing, offering help is another. It is better to give than receive. We know this.

Never any expectations, except to “Live, before you die”.
Being brave means asking for help. When we’re younger, we do this constantly, because we don’t know much. When we’re older, we do it sparingly because we know a ton. Plus, we don’t want to look stupid. But we rarely reach a point where we know enough to no longer need to ask. This post by Lee Cockerell illustrates the basics brilliantly.
