It isn’t always easy to ask for help. Depending on what I am asking for, it can make me uncomfortable. I don’t want to make anyone go out of their way. I don’t want to intrude. Asking for help can make me feel vulnerable—like I’m naked in front of a large crowd. While recovering from my concussion, I had to ask for help constantly. I couldn’t drive or cook for myself, so I had to get comfortable with asking for assistance. I felt exposed and at risk of being rejection.
