I am having a moment. One of those situations where you are lost and unsure of what needs to happen next and whether you need to be in the middle of it. I am a caretaker at heart. It kills me to see anyone hurting… in distress… at the end of their rope with no where to turn and no hope left.
Imagine how you would feel if you had carefully stacked a long line of dominoes up and then someone jokingly bumps into you causing the dominoes to begin to fall one by one. The only problem is you no longer have the means to stand them back up again…you need help and no one is either willing or able to help you.
What if those dominoes represented your job, your car, your home, your electricity, your heat, your internet access & your food budget or lack there of. How long could you do without any of those things?
I’m torn - I am not wealthy - but I am better off than the one who needs help stacking the dominoes again. Do I overextend myself to help or do I be honest & say I wish I had the means, but I don’t.
It feels wrong to turn my back, so wrong it hurts. Like I should be going to confession to say I didn’t do what I know I should be doing to help a soul, on the ropes, in deep trouble. But then again will it be enough to only pick up one domino when I can’t control all the others? Will it make a difference. What would you do?
