Women are stereotyped as being very communal; however, we are often reticent to ask for help. The reasons women don't ask are numerous: fear of no; not wanting to appear naive or weak; maintaining privacy; shame; feeling like I should be able to do this.
By not asking we cut ourselves off. Asking for what we want expands us in many ways.
Exercise your ability to ask by asking someone to do something for you for the purpose of exercising your asking muscle.
