The A Word

I am not afraid of spiders.  They gross me out, but I'm not afraid.

I am not afraid of the dark.  Just the things my over-active imagination creates in the dark.

What I am afraid of is something very simple.  It's something my younger siblings mastered when we were growing up, but not me.

I am afraid to ask.  For anything.  I don't want to impose and I don't want to appear weak.  I feel guilty asking for anything because I worry that the person I am asking would feel pressured to say yes, even if they didn't want to. Yeah, I have guilt issues too.

So, what am I afraid to ask for this time?  It's simple.  I want a day off.

  1. See, good thing you asked! I just read your recent post about actually getting a day off! I'm very happy for you, it must have been nice, and it sounds like you got a lot accomplished while still relaxing/shopping/enjoying a latte as well. You're an amazing person and should not be afraid to ask more in the future!
