Monday Wisdom from Helen Keller

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

Sometimes all a suffering person needs from me is my faith that they can overcome their sorrows. This does not mean that I an absolved of responsibility to act when I should, but it does not mean I must do for others what they can grow by doing for themselves. I am not entitled to deprive someone I love of the experience of their own resourcefulness.
