I was told by a person that I could go to them for help as long as I needed it after I expressed a concern that I was being a burden. I did not want to be a burden. When that person said that I could get their help for as long as I needed I believed that person. Now that person is wondering why I still need help. Does it mean I will help you until I get tire of helping? That is what seems to be the cause.

I love this answer. What if the person does not think you are doing enough to help yourself and they really don't know the entire situation?
If you respect the person who offers help, you owe them an account of the entire situation, then they will know whether or not you are adequately helping yourself. You shouldn't ask someone for help if you will not provide them with pertinent info.
No need to spill your life situation to anyone, the person should be able to acknowledge whether you are helping yourself are not. An example I was helping someone pay some expenses but I also seen that the person was trying hard to look for work.
I can see both points. What if you were sought out to help and did not want the help but took it because the person seemed sincere?
