    Is That The Real Reason Why You Do It?

    If you wish to be a good counsellor you have to learn how to detach your emotions when or if the person refuses help. Remember that people who have issues (don't we all?), I mean people in general can be selfish, and their selfishness dictates that that they should neither care...

    I do like to help others very much.  Maybe too much and it backfires, and I have just begun to wonder why. I had a boyfriend, who I helped all day long and he pretty much slapped me it the face for it.  He once told me that I don't give or help anyone without a price...

    I've found as a soldier that a large part of my job is actually assisting those in need.  At times, it may not seem like that is what I'm doing, but  it is.  I think that being a part of a military group encourages philanthropic endeavors.

    Well, I just got the opportunity to help girls

    at a school for girls that have problems at school or home. And I'm taking it. Mostly to help with self-esteem because I have come to terms with how I look and want to help them as well.
