Spending too much time in helping others we hardly cared about

post is my compliment after reading a very well written post/comment by a
fellow blogger Andy of Tacomob. His article is:
means “taking care of my own business” by the way, and I will add on my
comments to some of the well-written verses mentioned by Andy.
Verse 1
“You will have noticed that
in all the above examples, the person thinking these thoughts is linking his
well-being to something someone else should or should not do, which obviously
is out of his control. It is the other person’s business to do or not do what
he needs to do, not yours.”
Rolf’s thoughts
reading, we may think that this is selfishness. However I interpret it to be more
like, focus on improving oneself so that we can lead by example. Then our
well-being can naturally be felt by others who need it. More importantly we
should show sincerity, love and compassion to others by sharing the truth at
least once. That is, even if there is strong revolt against us now, for one day
they may realize the truth, repent and right the wrong. 
Verse 2
To Tacomob means having the
courage to act instead of react.
Rolf’s thoughts
many times we had experience that “we knew it all along, but we did not do
anything prior.”
Verse 3
“I am convinced that one
has to take care of one’s own business and sort that one out first in order to
be able to fully take care of others…..when you say your business is ‘to care
for people you care’, then I would consider those people integral part of my
business as well.
What I am trying to say is
that we might spent too much time on helping other people who we hardly care
much about.”
Rolf’s thoughts
Andy, I am convinced that without helping ourselves, how can we help others? This
message is so strong in me that my blog name Rolf Suey means “Yourself”. And
you can only finally rearranged the alphabets to “Yourself” when you truly
know yourself deep down and understand the true meaning of life.
is just like an airplane instruction that during emergency, we adults help
ourselves first before helping the children. Moreover for more profound problems people faced, we need the knowledge
and resources to help others and not just helping with ignorance, which can
turn out to be worst.
relevant of all is Andy’s last sentence that we are even spending too much time
helping people we hardly care about.
time before we say we wanted to help, first ask yourself if you really care first?”

    Greetings to everyone, Life they say is full of deceit. No torture and pain can be compare to what i Theresa L. Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, I trusted the words of those fake loan lenders without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan i sold my car defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life has been piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already. Until last week a very close friend told me that she got a loan from PROSPER LOAN PLC that i should also give it a try. Not having an option I contacted them with a heart full of sorrow and skepticism i shyly follow their procedures comply to their policy, I was waiting for the bad news like every other loan company i contacted gave me then i receive a credit alert that my bank account has been credited with $250,000 which i initially applied for instantly tears of joy roll out of my eyes because I never believe it will come through. Whenever you are in need of any kind of loan don't be a prey and contact the one true loan company via their information. Email: [email protected] or Call +1(205) 224-8709. And receive your financial breakthrough.

  5. It's very, very easy to do and it's something that unfortunately a lot of traders do not do. If you want to make more in less time, set and forget is the answer. DFSA100Liberty House, DIFCGet 25 % Bonus We can't deny the fact that Forex trading is a risky form of investment anyone can venture into. They think about entering a trade and the price flying in their direction for an easy profit and high fives from friends (fantasy), or entering a trade and the price plummeting against them, stopping them out (nightmare). Among the main participants of the forex trading market, one of the most growing segments of the total pool of participants of the marketplace, are retail foreign exchange traders (individuals) who participate in online forex trading for mainly speculative reasons with the ultimate goal of generating a profit from currency fluctuations (market changes), or hedging unwanted currency risk.http://www.forexmastermethodevolutions.com/
