Why you hate asking for help—and how to overcome your discomfort.
- Many adults with ADHD hate asking for help because of a fear of looking incompetent or weak.
- Perfectionism in combination with ADHD makes it tough to trust others to follow through and meet your standards.
- Break tasks down so you can be more specific about asking for assistance or delegating some of them.
- Reframe vulnerability as a strength and acknowledge the courage you need to know you limitations.
