My Problem With Helping Others..

My problem with helping others is that they end up being more important then my own life. What bites especially is the people that take advantage of it and show no appreciate or use my trust of them to steal from me.

Now that I finally met people that appreciate what i do for them and return the favor, I am happy :)

I love helping others

It's not about people being more important than your own life. It's about putting the lives of others before you - not for what they can do for you in the future, but just because you have the ability to help them and you did. <br />

Not trying to sound like the preacher here, it's just that you thoughts here sound just like the thoughts I use to have for many years. You can by cynical and believe that you should only help those that appreciate you and return the favor, but true strength lies in opening yourself up and helping everyone you can - even the ones that may not appreciate what you do or will return the favor. And yes, occasionally there may be those who try to take advantage of you but they will be lost in the vast number of people you could allow yourself to help. Don't let your cynicism hold you back from really helping others.

It is more blessed to give than to receive...even when others take advantage of you, which is all part of the experience.

yea, seriously.. All my friends are 32+ and not nearly as mature

to add to your joy, be glad you learned it at such a young age....
