You will want to be helping those less fortunate than yourself, by submitting discussion. But as you gradually come to terms with your own hidden needs, you have a better understanding of those around who may be struggling slightly. Listen to your instincts since that quiet inner voice will tell you all you need to know. There may also be secret advisers around who can help you understand yourself better, and let you see that your own inner judgement is really the best to your own problems, but at other times we need a guiding light.

So, I've finally found you again. I have been trying with much dismay to get organized. Terrific topic since it very closely matches exactly how I've been feeling. I'll be answering you again soon. Looking for other guidance as well. It not as hard as my mind wanted me to think. Just a little practice. Do you ever skip the tag?

Sometimes I skip the tag but not when I put out my own discussions only when I am responding to other discussion but for my own never. You also say that you finally found me again well I do not know why as not unless you do not put on notification as I always have mine on especially to my good friends like you are have a wonderful day.

I love helping others. Especially those that are less fortunate than myself. I know that I go through things and have had a hard time in my life but there is always someone out there that has had a harder time and has less than yourself. That's how I was brought up. I think we all need to understand ourselves better before we can truely understand anyone else. You are right. We all need a guiding light at times.

That is very true! I always try to help others less fortunate then me, I know there will always be someone out there who will also help me when I need a helping hand. I also agree, our inner judgment is the best but there are so many times when we may also need someone else's help and there is nothing wrong with that. I think there are times when we can be too prideful or embarrassed to ask for help, or even advice but I've realized it's okay, there's always someone else who has been in our situation who might really be able to make a difference just by them knowing what we are going through.

I always did try to help people in need. I always would hope that being like this would promote return of favor if needed and able to be offered back at some other point. But more over than the payback from it the feeling one gets when they can help even if it is in a small way. But you know it wasnt until the last few months and going through a bad time myself that i was able to add empathy to the people in need i was trying to help because i have become one myself. Really helps you see things in a different light. And there have been people family and friends that have helped me alot lately and i am so thankful for that. I always have tried to see the good in everyone cause i believe no matter who you are or what you have done in life we all have good in us. I find myself to be a very compassionate person my only flaw in being that way is i think i can change the world and make it better and in some causes that is not possible and that really gets me down. I think i am going to take your advise and go and see someone who can help me understand me better that way i might be able to handle things going on in my life better for me and my children. Thanks for the discussion Kathy you opened up my eyes a little wider again.
