If Someone Owes You Money, It’s Okay To Just Ask
Megan Reynolds

The converse is also true: if you owe someone money, either pay it back or acknowledge that you owe it and outline a plan so they don’t have to worry about whether and how they’re getting it. Sometimes people feel awkward about asking for money owed them because they think “well he/she must know they owe me, right? Maybe they’ll be really defensive and I’ll just seem impatient and greedy?” So in the interest of equitable relationships everyone should just do their part to tackle uncomfortable money situations as soon as they arise.
