The greatest help we can give to others is doing the work to reach ourselves.
We can’t control what others project onto us, but we can determine what we send into the world. When we are our own best friend we are able to heal, transmute, align, and BE who we came here to be.
It’s easy to get lost in the hall of mirrors when you look for the answers outside of yourself, or try to “fix” or “help” others. What you need to address is within.
When you reach yourself you become an example to others who are seeking the same within themselves. And that is truly a help.
