You might find it difficult to ask someone a question or to ask someone to help you out. Telling yourself, "Just ask," might make it easier.
Before saying these two words, you might have been debating whether or not to ask. Even though you know you have a right to ask and that it will be beneficial to ask, you feel a bit uncomfortable. As you say to yourself, "Just ask," you might just go ahead and actually ask. In many situations you will find that asking is much easier than you had expected.
