Learning to accept help

I like to help people, it is what makes me feel better. I don’t really like having to be the one that accepts help. But I am learning more and more that it is important for me to accept the help that people offer, and that I am not useless just because I can’t help them back in the way I would prefer. I found this quote a while ago, and i love it.

“Even when we can no longer do something for our fellowmen, we can still be something for them; … no man or woman of the humblest sort can really be strong, gentle, and good without the world’s being better for that goodness.”

  1. Lovely quote, and yes it is an ongoing thing I go through as a 'coping' type personality with an invisible disease – knowing when to ask for support.
