Asking for help can be hard.

It takes vulnerability to admit that you don't know something.

Even after a decade of freelancing, I still have trouble asking for help, even from close friends.

As a freelancer, we're expected to be a one-man/woman army who supposedly knows everything. This is ridiculous. We're human, just like everyone else, and we sometimes need help, even if we just need someone else to talk to.

When you do find the courage to ask someone for help, do yourself a favor and figure out exactly what you need. It will make things much easier for you and the person you're going to for help.
