If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound with mine, let us work together

I saw this quote, and it echoes something I feel. Its hard to describe what it is like when people come to help and think they are better than me. It sucks! I would rather do it on my own than have someone look down on me for having hard times.

It is true that we are all connected. My freedom from this pain effects many people. Most of those people will never know about this journey I have been on, but it will change their lives. I know that others' freedom from pain, heartache, etc. effects me.

We are all held captive by something, and together we can all be liberated.

  1. We all have struggles. You and I share some struggles and others are completely different. Just because my struggles are different doesn't make me better or worse. Hopefully we can all make the journey in a way that makes us happy and fulfilled.
