I Don't Need Any Help, But Can We Talk.

A lot of people come to see me. They start out their conversation with " I don't need any help, but can we talk?"

That's the key to helping, let others talk.

People feel better about themselves if they can talk without:

1) Disruption


Many times people can answer their own questions and then thank me for my help. Sometimes I say nothing at all.

It's ok to ask for help.

It's ok to ask.

It's ok.

I would try to defuse the issues to see what the real problems were.

well would you think it was ok if the above is what you got ???

Not really. I look at it from a different prospective.

n o its not because when people ask they don't always get what you manage to give <br />
<br />
others freak out others stop listening(if they ever started) others hand you a laundry list of how to fix it <br />
<br />
others tell you how whatever it is is all your fault imply that you are stupid insne reckless you name it for being where you are <br />
<br />
others will be like get over it stop whining (for simply expressing yourself) or accuse you of sucking the life out of them despessing them brining them down <br />
<br />
that is the ones who aren't dialing the crisis line or 911 on you <br />
<br />
are you starting to see my point ?
