The Paradoxes of Life - The Helping Paradox

To help others, you must first help yourself.

Too many people out there are full of great intentions of helping society, humanity and the less privileged, but with no clue of how to help themselves to begin with. In fact one might appreciate this better when one tries to help oneself and finds that it appears to be a difficult question to answer. It will require much honesty and much clarity and love to address that issue.

In most cases it is the self that needs help first - from you. Once you take care of your 'self' you will find both the depth, the security and the patience to help others in a way that truly benefits them.

Yourself first. And after being fully sated, you will find it easy to share. To give.
