Helping Others Can Be Draining

Helping Others

God made us to need each other. We cannot make it through life without one another. But, in America’s society we are taught to be independent. What often happens is that in our striving to take care of ourselves we forget how to help those who are hurting. I think if this worked for me, well then it will work for you. When they do not get better we get upset and frustrated. This is why I feel helping others can be draining.

Romans 15:1 New Living Translation (NLT)

Living to Please Others

15 We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves.

To force our own solution onto another could hurt their feelings. We could come off as if we know everything. God calls us to be sensitive. But how do we be sensitive without being pulled down with them? I ran across an article today by Career Call Blog. In the article titled Out of Control they write about ones own self control. Basically learning to control ones self when interacting with others. There tips are great for anyone to try to put into practice.
