    You Just Have To Care....

    I believe you don't have to be perfect to help someone, all you really have to do is care. That is all, at least that's all that I want someone to do if they were going to help me. Just care.

    The Impact You Have On Others

    I was recently reminded of this by an old friend that I hadn't seen in years.   Many years ago, she was going through some very difficult times, and I would talk to her every day, sometimes for hours.   She had lost her job, was in a very abusive relationship...

    I Am Not

    I am not completely sure that perfect people would be of any help in fact. There needs to be a sense of empathy, wisdom and approachablity and these are things that are developed through our own imperfections I like to help, as I know the mistakes I have made are part...

    Just Be Who You Are

    Helping other and being who you are is not a hindrance to reach out people but it will make them happy that you reach to them and you will not know how you please them in your own way....

    No-one Is Perfect, Not One Person

      I agree absolutely----YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO HELP SOMEONE. I say may the Lord bless the person who thinks he or she is perfect; They may have some tough lessons ahead. I am a recovered alcoholic/addict by the Grace of God. I am far from perfect and have a...

    Nobody's Perfect

    We all need help sometimes in one area of our lives or another. Nobody in this life is perfect .If they were nobody would need any help. Everyone has something unique to bring to the table all you need is to care enough for others to bring it.

    You Aren't So

    don't try, a lot of times it just comes down to spending time with someone and lending an ear to hear what they have to say.  That is mostly it. Offer some constructive advice and just be a friend to them, that is it. If they are vomiting sick a cold damp wash cloth to...

    I Read Your Confession

    I don't believe you have to be perfect to respond to confessions. You don't have to have the perfect answer either. You don't have to have all of life figured out. Half the time, people aren't really looking for answers, they just have a profound need to share a deep thought that...
