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 🙏🙏🙏

  1. In addition to wanting to have autonomy/control in one’s life, some people might not have the intrinsic motivation to change! It’s like, we can lead the horse to water, but not make them drink it! So it would be awesome to find those that are open to the change so that one’s effort is not wasted!

      1. Haha!! Indeed! 🙂

        I resonate with your thought that I don’t always take advice out of stubbornness. LOL. Sometimes, I make the mistake, and learn myself. It’s funny! 🙂

  2. Intriguing. No doubt there could be many reasons why each of us, at times, fail to accept help from others. I wonder if the deeper question here might be about what our expectations are, as the one looking to provide the help.
