Have you ever faced a difficult situation when you had to choose between sorting it out yourself, or asking someone else for an easy fix? What did you choose — and would you make the same choice today?
As a young child, I was left much on my own to play with the neighborhood children unsupervised as both my parents were working and the only other pair of eyes to watch over me was my grandmother who had more she could handle with the household chores and daily lottery.
This made me realised that Uncle Bob don’t exist in my life. Started work at 17 and till now, Uncle Bob could be me 😐. People have often asked me about problems to solve or to share about. In other words, I became the goto person for an easy fix much to my detriment. I have failed to see that I made these people dependent on me and even lazy to learn or fix it themselves. This was not good both ways.
So I shall stop fishing for other people to feed them for a day. I shall teach them to fish or else… They will starve or I will burnout.
