Being able to offer someone a hand (and sometimes even two!) can feel a bit overwhelming. There are moments you might even feel as though you are being taken advantage, and you start to question whether or not it is even fair.
The truth is, there will be people who will take your kindness for weakness, but this does not mean you stop caring nor that you give up on them right away. If it starts to feel one-sided, discuss your feelings with the person. If discussing it with someone does not help, then you have to decide what is best for you. Find something to occupy your mind, even if it is a walk around the block. Breathe in the fresh air, exhale the stress. You will be glad you did.
