Am I Hurting Or Helping…?

When you are answering this question, don’t lie. Be honest with yourself. Ask yourself: “Am I hurting or helping…?”

Hard, right? Yeah!

It is easy to answer if you have been doing your best to live your values. You will know whether you are helping or hurting people by the way they treat you. The way they respond to you when you need them. The way they talk about you when you are not there. The way they go the extra mile to get things done for you. The way they feel when you make a mistake. These are some of the ways to know whether you are an asset or a liability.

You are helping when you do this:

You are helping when you reach out to other people. You are helping when you make other people important. You are helping when you give other people hope. You are helping when you help other people succeed. You are helping when you help other people find who they are. You are helping when you show people the way. You are helping. Keep helping!

You are hurting when you do this:

“Stop doing this. You are hurting yourself and others!”

You are hurting people when you yell at them. You are hurting people when you cannot share your love with them. You are hurting people when you belittle them. You are hurting people when you bully them. You are hurting people when you can’t even recognize the good work they are doing. You are hurting people when you take credit for the work done by other people. You are hurting people when you pay no attention to their growth and development. You are hurting them. Stop doing it, and start helping.

It is either you are helping or hurting people. There is no other way to look at it.

In moving forward, I strongly recommend that you help people, instead of hurting them. When you help other people, you are helping yourself. When you hurt other people, believe it or not, you are hurting yourself.

Choose help!
