    • When you give a fish, instead of a rod..

      It is always better to be selfless than to be selfish, but not to the point where you neglect yourself. If you are always making sure that everyone else is cared for, you will eventually realize that you are not. Everyone expects you to take care of everything without a second thought. That's when you realize that even in your aim of trying to make those people into better humans, you have made them selfish and unaware of what occurs outside of their bubble.

      On rare occasion, one of those people might look up and around to see what is going on, but for the most part, everyone is attempting to be interdependent when they are in fact dependents. The most readily accessible model of this would be the high school student who is unaware of how the clothes are magically placed in his/her closet, how the refrigerator and pantry are stocked, and how they live in a sanctuary that is impervious to intrusion. However, this model does not apply to everyone because of different economic positions along with extraneous variables, but it is the most recognizable because of mass media.

      What do you do when you realize that, as the selfless caregiver, you are not appreciated, and you have created exactly the opposite of what you intended? It is not possible to change the personalities of anyone. You cannot go back and change the situations those beings were in to change how they have been molded. What do you do when those people have children, and expect their children to take on the roll you had in their lives? You cannot intervene because they are not your children; you cannot release them from the cycle you have inadvertently put into motion.

      There is nothing wrong with being selfless, so long as it does not prevent the maturation of the people you touch.

      Before you watch this keep in mind that these were not bad people, they were like you and me and I'm sure that you can find a situation you have been in and did something close to what happened here. If you have ever not been sure if you should help or not and kept walking, thinking someone else would surely call for help.

      A friend of mine and his girlfriend just broke up, her choice. And he came to me for help. I know you should comfort your friends in situations suck as this but I couldn't find the words. I wanted to make him feel better but all I could think was that he need to move on. I felt selfish for wanting that. And I don't know if he was talking to anyone else about this so what ever I said to him could have a big impact. In the end I told him what was true to how I felt. that he should let go and accept the brake up. Good news is that he is happier now and does seem to have moved on.

      If you have a situation like this and would like to share it feel free to do so. And if you are in a situation like this and would like to talk to an admin we would love to help, just keep in mind i'm not the sensitive one.

      Spiteful poison spelled out in letters on a page, soothing memories formed by words on a parchment. Healing sounds forming on the lips of a close friend. Victories and defeats craved into stone. Records lasting in the dusty vaults on ancient ruins of forgotten empires.

      The earliest known form of script is Cuneiform or wedge script and it ushered in the world's first information age.

      Words are powerful, they can change the world. How have they changed your life?

      The most perfect example of denominator in life is "Time". It's logically irreversible and it's one of the greatest factor affecting everything that is existing. It defines decision, regret, joy, sadness, life, and death.

      The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear....
