It's Okay to Ask

You may have been conditioned as child NOT to ask strangers for anything. You may have been made to believe that asking is often times inappropriate. You may have been made to believe a lot of negative things related to asking.  

One thing I do know is that if you don't ask, you will never know.

And whether this is in regard to love, life, doubts, self doubt and everything else around you, asking is still better than assuming.

Maybe, the thought of knowing the truth makes you reluctant in asking. But then, wouldn't that be better than living in an assumptive environment? Another reason for not asking is probably the fear of rejection.

Listen, when you ask a person for something, the worst thing that person can say to you is "no". And that's okay.

By the way, if you don't know how to ask, start your sentence with:  May I... or Can you...

"May I ask you help me carry this box?"

"Can you be honest and tell me if there's something wrong with us?"

Go!  Fumble!  Discover!

Have a great weekend ahead of you! And don't forget to leave your thoughts in the "comments" box.


  1. Your tagline below your name above says it all. Good thoughts, good article Bro. Paco!

  2. I was about to say that but you said it already; "asking is better than assuming!"
