It makes me wonder why people don't want to accept my help. It can't be that they don't want to owe me one, these aren't those kinds of relationships. Do people have a lack of faith in me and they don't want to get involved with or deal with me?
I like to help- in fact it's my job to help others. Although, I can't call it helping when I'm on the job. I have to say things like, How can we work together on that? Apparently it's degrading to insinuate that someone needs help.
I wish all of my offers to help or work with could be accepted more easily, like this example of a conversation between me and my husband the other day:
Him: I have to go to the city. Going to take the train.
Me: I could drive you to the train station so you don't have to worry about parking.
Did that sound difficult?
I didn't think so. Why can't everyone in my life just be more like my husband?
How often do people accept your offers to do something? Am I the only one with this dilemma? Am I being too sensitive?
