Thank goodness

Luckily things in my little world have settled down. I thought I was going to have to get into the middle of something that I didn’t want to get in the middle of. And quite frankly, it was none of my business anyway. However, to keep peace and harmony, I was debating whether or not to get involved. By delaying taking any action I was able to avoid sticking my nose in where it didn’t belong and alienating people that don’t know me very well.

Why are there people in this world that are always the counselor? It seems that all my life people tell me things and ask me for advice. Some of these people I didn’t even know very well. What is it about me that make these people think I have any answers? Who knows? I can understand helping your friends and the people close to you, but it’s the others that drive me crazy. It’s not like I don’t have my own issues to deal with. The difference between them and me is I try to handle things on my own. I like to figure things out. I don’t like to burden others with my problems that they quite frankly can’t help me with. Perhaps, I’m the one who’s been wrong all these years.

So, here’s what I was wondering. At what point do you go to others for help? When do you get involved with other peoples’ problems? When they ask you or when you see that something is wrong and you just want to help?

When I was younger, I used to bottle everything up and not ever ask for anybody else's help. Now, I freely ask, b/c it helps me to analyze things aloud. I get involved w/ other people's problems after I ask them if they would like some help. Sometimes, though very rarely, I'll stick my nose in if the person is a great friend of mine.
