Watch here one of the many repercussions of trying to help.
Ever try to help someone who really needed it, but didn’t want it? Ever spend a great deal of effort, time, expense, patience, and thoughtfulness, for nothing, or worse? Ever had someone constantly kibitzing, especially the people who should be the last to try to help? How’s being helpful to people been workin’ out for ya?
One day, it dawns on you. Yep, you finally realize it. In that rush of epiphany, soul-deep, you are forever changed. From now on, you know you should just stoptryingtohelp.
