You Must Accept Having To Be Realistic

Helping people can be a great experience. Trying to make a positive difference in our world is a big goal for many individuals, and with good reason.

However, if you try to help others via charity work, being a mental health worker, helping those with substance addiction issues, etc., you must be realistic.

Hey, I'd like to go out and save the world too. But if you aren't realistic about how much you can make a difference, if you have unrealistic goals, then you will merely burn yourself out.

And by doing so, you won't be able to continue to help others.

It's true that you can help people. But be realistic. You can't help everyone. You can't save the world. If you can't accept these facts, then that'll be a huge problem for you.

ESPECIALLY when they won't help themselves (I.e., my kid brother).

The worst part for me is trying to help when it's obvious to everyone but me that it's not working but "enabling." (As I get older, I'd like to think I'm getting smarter about it, but you never know).
