Thursday Thoughts


“Despite your best efforts, not everyone wants to be helped. Make a difference where you can and be at peace with the rest” Gary Hopkin

What exactly is the author of the above quote trying to tell us?

I request you to make me understand better.

Why do some people refuse the much-needed help?

Is this because of pride?

Maybe the person providing the help may not be to their liking?

Maybe they don’t wish to be a nuisance?

And being stubborn?

And there may be many more reasons.

One can never know.

When you try to help the needy and if the needy refuses your help do you feel bad?

What are your thoughts?

Or do you think, they feel that you are fishing in the troubled water though your intentions are good?

How to explain this psychology?

Is this anything to do with mindset?

The following quote gives a different explanation

Maybe it’s correct?

“People seldom refuse help, if one offers it in the right way” A C Benson.

What are your thoughts, my friend?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    I suppose it’s a feeling of control, if you accept help you are no longer in control, and don’t wish to be always grateful.

    I’m sure pride has something to do with it
