It's good to get another person's viewpoint if you are stuck on something and can't figure it out. Now I know that many of us (including myself, of course) don't really like to associate with people, but you don't have to talk to everyone about it. I have one person who I go to for everything. (I trust this person with my life).
Cinderella's animal friends saw that she will most likely not be able to attend the ball even though her stepmother said she could since she was practically buried in chores. Because of this, the animals took initiative and made her a dress for the ball while she does her chores. She didn't ask them to do this, but they saw that she needed their help.
Teamwork goes both ways, so if you notice that someone needs help with something, offer a hand and reach out to others. If you help others, there will be more people there that are willing to help you when you need it.
