    i don't fear people saying no as much as i fear them saying yes and actually being put out or annoyed by it. wish people would just say what they mean so i didn't have to worry about that kinda stuff.

    you should ask for things.

    but sometimes people don't, and i think people are just giving reasons why.

    also, that's a really broad concept, Asking For Things. i think there's a lot of gray in there. so i dunno, you shouldn't not ask for things, but you shouldn't ask for everything.

    ...is my two cents

    naw man. if people don't want to give you something, they should say no. but i also think that you should give people things when they ask when you want to/can to balance everything out.

    lol, I think give and take is healthy and ultimately the purpose of relationships. I'm not really the whimsical type, so unless I was courting someone or wanted to make them feel helpful I wouldn't ask them for something like a makeshift trophy, but if you have a crafty/creative friend doing so seems like it would bring you closer together.

    I guess what I'm getting at is that, beyond friendship, connection, and occasionally collaboration, there isn't much someone else could get me that I couldn't get myself.

    No one is saying you shouldn't ask for things, or that you owe anyone if you do. People are answering the question in title of your thread, which is "Why are people afraid to ask for things?" It's not the same.
