While it is great to be able to give help to others when they genuinely need it, where do we draw the line? Does being compassionate mean we must bend over backward when others ask us to or that we must assist in solving everyone’s problems or gratifying their desires? Definitely not.
When helping others causes problems for us, it is time for a careful review of ourselves and our objectives. Life is infinitely more pleasant when we possess the ability to comfortably refuse unreasonable or inconvenient requests.
If we’d like to refuse obligations that aren’t really ours and want to avoid feeling angry and resentful when people don’t respect our needs, we must keep one important fact in mind: If we don’t acknowledge and respect ourselves and our needs, neither will anyone else.
