When Are You Helping? And When Are You Medling?

When are you helping and when are you medling.  Do you think of something somebody has shared with you as juicy gossip or an unspoken prayer.  Do you actually make things worse?  Understand always.  If it is not your personal business, be sure whatever you do helps, not harms.  Do what the other person wants even if you think you know a better way.  Help is not help if it is not what was sought.

Sometimes control of a situation is the only thing a person has left when they are at a lost as what to do.  If someone has a problem, don’t make it worse by gossiping about it.  Above else do no wrong.  You may not agree with them; but this may be the only shred of dignity the person has left.  Controlling how the news gets out is the only thing that they have left that they have any control over.  Don’t take that away from them.  In this case, it is not all about you.  Don’t make it that way.

Don’t be a drama queen and be the first one to tell the story even if it is not yours to tell.  When somebody has a problem they like to focus on themselves and the other people personally involved not other people who want to grab the attention for themselves.

How many times have you started to talk about a problem and someone interrupts you to tell you about their similar problem which (at least to them) was much worse.  What you can do is just pray.  For this you need no audience.
