Reblog: Don’t Do for Others What They Can Do for Themselves: North Shore Care Supply


Reblog: “Don’t Do for Others What They Can Do for Themselves” by Joan Y. Edwards – North Shore Care Supply Blog

A couple of weeks ago, Adam Greenberg, owner/President of North Shore Care Products asked me on LinkedIn if I would be a guest on their blog. Thank you, Adam.

Wow! What an honor! I hope you’ll stop by! Feel free to email Adam at info@northshorecare.com and let him know you liked it.

Here’s the beginning paragraph.

Many times in life you see others struggling to accomplish something. You are tempted to do it for them. That shows your compassion. You can do it easier than they can. It’ll be a more-perfect job. However, don’t do for others what they can do for themselves. Show respect for them. Make them stronger and more confident so they can continue to do it for themselves. Don’t do it for them; help them achieve it. Be a partner, not a solo.

  1. Joan, this is such great advice. I had to balance that when my mom was sick. Also, when I have been the patient, I experienced that when people wouldn’t let me help myself.

    • Dear Kathleen,
      Thanks for writing. I’m glad you were able to balance this when your Mom was sick. I can imagine that it was stressful when others wouldn’t let you do what you could when you were the patient, too. It’s all a balancing act at times. Communication, observation, and belief in yourself and the patient, is key.

      Love and hugs,
      Never Give Up
      Joan

  2. Great article. I especially liked “Helping means doing some, not all.” I think I quoted that correctly. Proud of you for landing this guest blog spot. Well done.
