There are many kinds of people. Some more than others are able to handle their affairs.
If you’re blessed with the ability to be able to manage your circumstances, it’s very likely at some point you’ll be asked to lend a hand.
While I think that everyone should be willing to help, you must be careful when allocating yourself to others. You can easily overextend yourself, leaving very little time for keeping up your health, wealth, or mental well-being.
It’s hard to see the limit before you cross it. But once you have, you know it.
It’s also difficult to bring yourself back to the other side of it. Caring for yourself is paramount, as you’re no good to anyone (yourself included) if you’ve lost your ability to manage your affairs.
