If you never ask, the answer is always no. Yee Shun-Jian

How often has there been something that you have either needed or wanted and you have not asked for it because you knew the person you had to ask would say no? If you are like most people, the answer is often. I urge you to change your course and steer in a new direction.
Events in my childhood and my subsequent addictions robbed me of my self worth and the ability to ask for anything I needed or wanted. I was good at taking, but not asking. My journey into sobriety has shown me a new path that has taught me that it is OK to ask and be told NO and that learning to experience disappointment was an important part of my recovery.

As an Addiction and Spiritual Counselor, much of my time is spent helping people just like me learn to ask and then learn that no is OK and that frequently the answer is yes. Whatever it is that someone has chosen to heal will require learning to ask for something they need. This is a crucial step in the healing process.
I am not responsible for what you will reply to my request. I am responsible for valuing me enough to ask you for what it is that I want or need. I have spent my life asking and have gotten far more than I ever imagined I would and as a result have traveled to places I never thought I would visit, been able to experience some of life's greater pleasures, met people I had only read about and enjoyed knowing that I asked for what it was that I needed or wanted and got exactly what God (whatever that means) wanted me to have. I am so blessed!
My prayer for you today is to let go of what you think I will say and ask me. Force me to take as much responsibility for the decision as you have yourself to ask.
