I always want to be helpful but sometimes I probably should mind my own business. Nice people want to help everyone and save the day. However there’s no way one human being can save the world but give some credit to those who try. I think there are people that need to be left to their own devices to work through their issues.
I have come to recent conclusion I cannot help everyone. Believe it or not I have my own problems that need tending to. Although I would love to save the world, there is only one Person I know that can do that and I am not that Person. There is only so much I can do to help people.
Now that doesn’t mean never come to me for advice and a shoulder to cry on. If you want my help be willing to listen and to provide a course of action to make things better.
I am a nice guy but I have limits.
A call for help is not an excuse to bail out but a call to action. How do you respond to such a calling?
As the Beatles once sang Help, I need somebody. Sometimes it is crazy to step on faith to be a help to others. Are you that person are you an action hero.
When you help someone up a hill, you get that much closer to the top yourself.
For some sharing their cares and concerns is often times uncomfortable. There’s the fear that they will be looked at differently and be judged. Solid friendships are based on trust that no matter what one is going through they can share what’s going on with others in their group of friends.
It’s important that people have other people who will share their burdens a little. Now, not everyone wants to share and they feel like they are imposing on the good nature of others, that’s fine, people are peculiar about their privacy and perhaps their pride. Love, respect and discretion are important…honor that when helping a friend or family member.
Friends, I hope you have special people in your life where you can turn to during times when your hearts ache, your soul needs filling and life has you in a bind. Resources and people are available to help you through. Houses of worship, community organizations, counselors and the like can be there for you.
When life gets too difficult never be ashamed to ask for help. Don’t let pride get the best of you. Our world is broken and can work against you. Please be willing to ask someone who can help you through the tough times. Get help when you need it.
I wish people would schedule in opportunities to make their world a better place. If we have time for a movie or a ball game perhaps we can do some things of value to help people in need. There are a lot of things we can do to change our communities. Lending a helping hand is a great thing.
Never be afraid to ask for help. No matter what crisis you are experiencing don’t allow yourself to suffer. There are people in your area to help. Life is too short and your problems can be overcome with the assistance of good people and some work. Clergy, counselors, coaches and other professionals would love to see you through to a brighter, better life.
I learned a few new things today while fixing a problem with my wife’s computer. She couldn’t get her Dropbox installation to work on her laptop. Well we run Linux and I had to do some research on how to fix it being different from Windows and Mac OS. Well after getting support from Linux community websites and forums I believe I do have it fixed. It’s cool when you can get something working again and gain some knowledge along the way.
Whenever you have a problem you need to fix you find yourself learning along the way. Hopefully what you are fixing won’t be wrecked in the process though. Mistakes will be made but if you take your time problems can be resolved.
There is something about doing something for yourself that is exciting. However never be ashamed to ask for help along the way because you can gain wisdom from the trial and error of others.
