Sometimes “helping” is actually harming. It’s called “enabling.” True compassion allows those I love to become strong and learn to fly by facing their struggles.
When I step in to “rescue” others, I may actually be harming them and preventing them from developing their wings to fly. When I do for others what they could and should be doing for themselves, I am not being compassionate, I am enabling and causing harm.
I must learn to give those I love the right to make their own choices and learn from their own experiences as a result of those choices. Only in this way will they gain the strength to fly!
