How do you ask for help?


We all need help at some point, and advice for anything nearly always includes "ask someone for help". I find it so hard, though. How do you actually go about asking for help? Sometimes I need help (a mix of practical help and headspace) but I'm not sure what kind, so I dont' ask because I feel I should be clear about what I'm asking for. And who do you ask? A friend, or the whole world via Twitter?

Asking is hard. Asking is important.

How do you ask for help?

UPDATE: Yesterday I talked with a friend in the Twitter poetry community about how she deserved to ask for help because she was feeling lonely. She reached out to the world with a tweet and by the end of the day she had joined a mini virtual lab and sounding chamber for some likeminded poets. I know stories don't always have happy endings, but I love that she asked for help and got what she wanted - not a Huge Solution and Fame, but the chance to work with a few people she liked and cared about. That is amazing.
