If you allow other people to help you, you can help yourself and them even more. But no one will ever know what you really want unless you tell them.
If you don’t tell people what you want, they can’t give it to you.
If you want to be pleased, tell people how they can please you.
If you want something, ask for it.
Sometimes you’ll be disappointed when you ask, but less often than if you don’t ask.
No doesn’t hurt as bad as you may think. Because there’s always another way. Or something else. Or someone else.
But yes feels really good. And so does helping someone make you happy.
They will thank you. You will thank them. The world will be a better place.
