Lately, my free time has been monopolized by helping others. Not quite in a charitable way, but when people have approached me for favors in the last few weeks I haven’t had the gumption to say no. However, that’s on me. It’s when I know someone wants my help but is too [ afraid / nervous / whatever ] to ask is what really irks me.
I’m a pretty giving person and as stated above if you’d only ask, my usual response will be yes. Do I want to lend a hand, not all the time, but I always put myself in the others’ shoes and know I would want help in most of their situations.
So with that, all I want you to do is ask. Don’t be the awkward weirdo hovering on the sidelines wonder if. Just go for it. After all, the worst anyone or myself could say is, “No.”
