Today one of my best friends called me to tell me how courageous she felt when she asked for a raise at work. She has no idea if she will get it or not, but whatever the outcome is, she feels at peace with herself for at least asking exactly for what she wanted and deserved. Know your worth and have the courage to let others know. Only then, you will get what you need and if you don't, at least you know you tried. Failing is failing to try. Also, don't doubt yourself. The more determined you are the better
