Motivational Quote - Never look down on anybody unless you are helping him up.

SparkPeople's Comments

It’s easy sometimes to look at others and think that you could do much better than them, put in the same situation. “If I were her, I could have lost that weight already!” “If I were him, there would be much less fighting in the house.” It’s so effortless to stand back and shake your head. Resist this temptation. You’ll never be able to fully understand another person’s situation. So instead of waiting by, observing, and judging, what can you do to help make that person’s life easier? Don’t preach or give advice, unless it is asked for. Listen to them. By being a friend, you’ll not only help somebody in a time of need, but you’ll be earning this in return when you someday need it.

Really,....SparkPeople quotes a guy that claims he is a Reverend and then got caught having an affair. Sorry, but this lowered my respect for SparkPeople.

Listen to them, be a friend.

I ran into a situation similar to this 5 or so years back with a young couple that was losing patience with their young child. I didn't understand it and instead of ridiculing I offered babysitting so they could get out by themselves several times a month. It was a win / win situation for everyone involved. Sometimes we shouldn't sit back we should get involved for everyone's sake. Donna
