“It does hurt to ask, but try anyways.”

I always wondered why people say “It doesn’t hurt to ask” when we all know that it really does!  More often than not, when we ask and don’t really know what the outcome will be, we are making ourselves vulnerable, putting ourselves in a situation where there is fear of rejection, and potentially putting our self-esteem on the line.  Often it really does hurt to ask… and if you think about it, the fear of the ask is most likely harder emotionally than the negative feelings that we will receive if we are actually told no!  So always remember, it does hurt to ask, but try anyways.
