Could you help me overcome my fear of asking for help, please?
One of my biggest weaknesses has always been asking for help when I need it. I have always felt like the only person I can really count on is me and I expect myself to be able to figure it all out. Whether it's posting questions in Live Chat or sharing my site on social media, I am always worried I am somehow putting people out simply by asking for their support or guidance. Writing that out makes me see how ridiculous those thoughts are - in reality no one has to help, and so what if they don't, what's the worst case scenario really and someone might respond?
I am getting to the point in the training where social media presence is starting to become an important part of the website building process. I've always known that it is, but I went into this full steam ahead figuring I would have the ability to do what I had to when I got to this point. As a self-proclaimed introvert, I'm doing my best to get over this irrational fear.
My first step tonight was to post my sight on Facebook for all my friends to see and ask for their support in helping me to grow my site. I think that's a pretty good first step. It may seem like a small one to many of you, but trust me when I say this is a hard thing for me to do. In the back of my mind I am afraid they are all just laughing at me.
Do any of you have these sorts of irrational fears and what do you do to push yourself through them?
