Understandably, we are somewhat self-conscious. We don’t want to offend others nor do we want to embarrass ourselves due to rejection. While it is quite alright to think that way, it is not so when you know what you want and why you want it. It is up to you to make the ask. Yes, despite you being self-conscious, the possibility of offending or even embarrassing yourself. Because if you don’t, be certain that you will not get whatever it is that you seek. So get off your comfort zone and go be uncomfortable. Knowing why you want it, really, does go a long way especially in this regard.
