Episode 188: When Help is the Sunny Side of Control
I recently had an experience with a child that made me think about the difference between helping and fixing. Helping someone is something we do when they ask for it. Fixing is something we do to make ourselves feel better. And if you listened to last week’s podcast, you’ll know that control is just a way to make ourselves feel better. So, listen to this episode and find out how to notice when you’re trying to fix things for someone else to make yourself feel better and what you can do instead.
