Becoming the best version of yourself

Have You Ever Felt Useless? (When Trying To Be Useful?)

on October 21, 2021

Was just thinking last night about the number of people that I’ve tried to help out in the past. It’s funny, not everyone who asks your opinion, for your help, for your guidance – really wants it. Is it just small talk? Or do they just not think you’re really smart enough?

When you’ve answered questions, the same way, over and over, and they still don’t listen – why is that? Sometimes I do know the answer. If I don’t know an answer I’ll say so – nothing worse than someone needing to feel smart and making something up and answering incorrectly.

So is it that I don’t project intelligence?

Could it be instead that they just are very poor listeners?

I’m thinking that I’ll keep on trying to be helpful, I’ll keep on answering (when asked) and I will try to never feel useless. I really do like being useful, bet you do too!
