Trying to help should always be good enough. While I can be as cynical as anyone, I try to make a point to help when I can even if it’s in a small way. I’ve been taken advantage of at times but I try to view it as I had my heart in the right place. It’s incredibly hard for me to ask for help so I like to imagine it’s the same for most others. The one thing I’ve always gotten in return is that feeling you get when someone says “thank you”. For me that’s enough.
