Making a difference in others lives can be very rewarding. However, it can also be easier than taking care of yourself. Dr. Lamia highlighted some of the risks of what she calls "White Knight Syndrome" (see link for article/synopsis at the bottom of this post) - often it is easier and seductive to help others, but at the risk of not doing the work for yourself.
It isn't that you have to be perfect to help others, but it helps if you have filled your cup, and built a foundation to which your growth is on, as if you haven't done the work for yourself, what value is your help?
Many people often fall into the trap of loving others more than themselves, and add to it that growth can be painful, it can be easy to understand why the reward of helping others could be much more fun than personal growth.
I've been there - and trust me - filling your cup will make all the difference. Helping others is amazing, but may never fill the void...actually, according the Dr. Lamia...it may even make it worse. I once heard a quote - "the best way to help the poor, is to not become one" - and I think you could say the same about making a difference. Charity starts at home, and self care is non-negotiable.
Once you're filled the holes in your cup, and fill it...you will have so much to give and the ability to give it in abundance without burnout.
Thank you for being a Black Sheep Thinker!

" Nothing is permanent in this world - not even ur troubles ." This shows the actual meaning of life , i.e life is like a flowing river in which nothing stays . All the things will passed away with the span of time , nothing stays with u.
The problem with us is that we want everything permanent in this temporary life , we forget that all things are not in our control.
And another thing is that we feel that all the troubles in the world are made for us , in present time people are so sensitive and emotional that small - small problems make them so stressed that made their mind to end theri life , how cowardly we are behaving forgeting that Life is a Great gift of God and we should never waste that gift by ending our life that way.
We should always keep that all the trouble all the problems have came to make us strong and that too will not stay for a longer period of time , it will also passed away.
So ultimately we should make ourself so strong that no problem could effect our life and we should also become example for others.
Another solution for getting energy for facing negative situation is to believe that God is with u always and he will surely take u out from all the adverse situations , this will give u mental power to face all the troubles of this world.
After a long day on my feet I love to heal and moisturize with our CBD Relief Oil!
Great for localized aches/pains, and even irritated/inflamed skin conditions.
The Eucalyptus Rosemary essential oils give a lovely natural mentholated relief while the CBD is absorbed for deeper healing🌱
Neurotransmitters (NTs) are chemical messengers in the brain that are the means by which nerve cells communicate with each other. There are 3 NTs, known chemically as monoamines, which are thought to play a role in mood regulation: Serotonin ("feel good" neurotransmitter), Norepinephrine & Dopamine.
Research indicates that inadequate levels of these NTs contribute to depression. Explanations for the cause of the reduced NT levels include:
Inadequate amount of an NT produced by the body.
Not enough receptor sites to receive the NT in the nervous system.
The NT is being taken back up too quickly (into the presynaptic) before it can reach receptor sites.
Chemical precursors (molecules from which NTs are built) may be in short supply.
Inadequate molecules that facilitate the production of NTs, such as specific enzymes.
An imbalance of NTs may then contribute to depression symptoms. In addition to the role of NTs, other factors cause depression including genetic factors, other illnesses, stressful events, grief and loss, childhood experiences, interpersonal relationships.
Whilst antidepressants may alleviate depression symptoms for some people, other people benefit from psychological counselling, or a combination of both treatments. Due to the complex nature of depression, it is important that the diagnosis and treatment be made by a mental health professional.
