Wednesday, October 9, 2019 – Giving others more than you can wisely afford to give is a disservice to everyone involved. You feel for someone’s troublesome plight, but perhaps they are trying to squeeze more out of their situation than you can offer. Your compassion is worthy of appreciation but you must be kind to yourself first. No one who truly values you wants you to suffer too much hardship just to alleviate theirs. Relief that brings comfort won’t make anyone feel worse. The bounds of your empathy begin and end with you.
