I’m a master helper! One of the greatest desires of my life is to help people be happy – especially my family. I feel qualified to help. I’ve been alive for a long time, experienced a lot of life, and learned a lot.
I know what it is like to be depressed and willing do ANYTHING to get out of pain. I know what it’s like to have goodness buried by guilt, shame, inadequacy, and fear so the need to hide is far greater than the need express oneself. I know what it’s like to be so overwhelmed by the task at hand that all mental and physical resources are spent on self-improvement or avoidance.
I get it!
I know what it is like to struggle and be human! And I’ve learned a lot through my struggle. I want to share and give to others so they don’t have to struggle and feel miserable. I want to share my knowledge and help the whole human race – starting with my family and the people close to me.
The only problem is that my helping doesn’t seem to help. It gives me a pulpit to share my wisdom. And pushes people away.
Sharing my wisdom and knowledge feels good. I love what I have to say. The only problem is, I’m tired of listening to myself. I’m tired of trying so hard. I’m tired of feeling disconnected and self-conscious. I’m tired of thinking I know it all, and searching when I don’t.
Maybe the problem isn’t my desire to help. Maybe the problem is the way I help. Helping is all about me giving what I have to give. Serving is about asking what is needed, seeing what unfolds, and being willing to trust and follow what comes forth.
Helping comes from knowing and taking action.
Serving comes from not knowing, asking, and following.
It’s time I let go of helping. It’s time to serve. It’s time to give what is truly needed rather than giving what I think is needed.
If you’re interested in this kind of service I’d love to hear from you. Message me on Facebook, or Email me at: anitawiggins at yahoo dot com
