RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Why is asking for help so hard? For many ego and pride gets in the way. However, most of the time asking for help can save time and energy. We won’t spend hours and hours frustrated at the task we’re struggling to understand. Whether you want to learn a new hobby, transition into a new career, or simply get emotional or mental support- asking for help may be the most beneficial thing you can do.
