“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” ― Kahlil Gibran
So often, we hesitate in helping others. We presume our hearts are just not big enough, or that what we might do couldn’t possibly have a much greater impact.
At times, it almost seems, as if we talk ourselves out of this process of reaching forward a helping hand—so much so, that we tuck them deeply back into our pockets, avert our eyes and walk away.
And, if we are really human at heart—we’ll shrink a bit, when guilt returns to ask, “Why didn’t you just…?”
Exactly, “Why didn’t you just…?”
And, it all comes down to one decision point—whether to reach out and help, or simply walk away.
So, let me ask you—what can you do to help someone else today?
