helping those that help themselves....
Tuesday, May 04, 2010
Have you ever had those people that you feel sorry for and know that with just a little bit of help that they could accomplish sooo very much?? And then, when you do help and they begin to move forward and you "let go" they just plummet. So, you reach out and help again and again and again.... It is kind of like the kid learning to ride without training wheels.... Anyway, my point is that EVENTUALLY, you MUST let go and let them fall!! Once they pick themselves up a few times, they hopefully will learn.
We have to STOP being their "training wheels"!! Either they will get tired of falling and learn to ride or they will find a new set of training wheels. Meanwhile, we have ridded ourselves of the "extra load" of responsibilities!
I am not saying not to help people...I am saying that we have to learn when to let go. If we don't, then they will NEVER learn to "ride" by themselves...AND, some people don't....We all have the to make the decision of learning to ride by ourselves or not...I have chosen to ride and to let go so that others can learn to ride also!!
