WHY HAVE I CHOSEN THIS QUOTE?
I think a lot of us like to help people. There is nothing wrong with giving people a bit of guidance and advice . The problem with always giving the same person help and advice -all the time – is the danger of that person relying on you for all their problems. It puts you in a martyr /saving role and the other person in a victim /helpless role.
We need to allow people to figure out their own path. If we take them with us on our journey ,they will never make a life that is truly their own. They will never become fully responsible and independent for themselves and their decisions.
By all means shine a light showing them them there is hope and a path/s they can take. Not all is lost. People need to figure out how to fight their own battles. It sounds cruel and in a way it is.
Look at nature as an example.
If baby animals were not left to learn how to survive and their family always took care of them and protected them ,then what are the chances of them one day being found alone and not knowing how to defend themselves? They will probably end up being killed.
Humans are resourceful when their only choice is to survive
I’ve said this before. And I am saying it again 😀
