I think part of my life I have always known that I was unnaturally positive. I’ve always attracted people who are needy in some way. People who become my true friends are radiators, they radiate my positivity back to me and I radiate theirs back too. They are few and far between.
Because I am positive I give to everyone who comes into my life and I rarely ask for help.
This week I asked two people for help. The first was my husband, a risky business given his depression. The second was a colleague.
My husband is thriving on it and seems to have a new lease of life. Maybe, just maybe he needs to feel like the one in control sometimes. A lesson learnt by this hidden supporter.
My colleague on the other hand chose to dump all of his problems on me instead of helping. Time to assess my job and the people I mix with?
