Helping people has become so conditional. I’ll help you but, you have to play by my rules, do what I say, live how I desire you to live. Giving should always come from a place of love. What I am seeing are people who are starving for a sense of control or are fearful of you outshining them. Either way, to limit or even deny someone the access to the resources they need to thrive, hurts us all.
Here are a few tips to help you shift from Helpless to Resourceful –
- Make a decision and commitment to yourself of who you want to be and what you want to accomplish.
- Know who your emotional support system is. These are your friends who will help you stay motivated and share other great information that will keep you on the right path.
- Get away from the unsupportive people as soon as possible. Chances are if they aren’t supporting you they are poisoning you, instilling fear, doubt, and lack into you. That is the last thing you need. Limit time and energy spent with people who don’t believe in you.
