A very important lesson brought to you by Ansatsu Kyoushitsu/Assassination Classroom. And, honestly, something that’s been relevant to myself lately. (Long story short, I’ve been giving this group of siblings constant rides and I’ve been bothered with how dependent they are on me to get around, to the point of not attending the session of church we attend because I couldn’t give them a ride that day. I’ve been troubled with what to do about it. I never expected to feel like I was being so taken advantage of when I agreed to give them rides.)
It’s good to help those around you. Be a shoulder to someone who needs it. It’s pretty uplifting to be able to make someone smile.
On the flipside, be careful because they may start to depend on you too much and do nothing on their own. Also, the helping party will feel resentment because they are being leeched on. In a case like this, it only drags both parties down.
One must practice balance. Learn when to give help and when it is important for the person to learn this lesson on their own.
