Ooh Me Me!!

Yeah, I was that kid in class that would always volunteer to pass out papers or stay in during recess to help the teacher in some kind of capacity.  That was me!  The teachers always seemed to appreciate it and I guess that made me feel good.  Well ever since then I have been a “helper.”  I spend all my life helping people, and I love it.  Chris and I are “helpers” and we’re always the first one to volunteer to help someone.  Oh you need an event planner?  Well hey, I know someone and I’ll make a call.  Oh you need invitations?  Hey I know someone who does that, I’ll give them a call too.  Your car broke down?  Okay, I’ll drop everything I’m doing and I’ll be right over to get you and I know someone that can help fix it!  You don’t have money to buy groceries for the week?  Well I can buy you a few things.

That’s us, we like to help people, mostly because we know what it’s like to be in tough spots and we’d just like to be able to help.  Apparently there’s such a thing as being too helpful.  Despite our good intentions of helping out friends, it recently blew up in our face and for once in my life I’ve wondered if I should stop helping people.  It’s a strange feeling to think that I shouldn’t help people because it’s in my nature to do what I can to help others, I get it from my mom.

It’s been an extremely stressful week, my blood pressure is high, we’re aggravated, everything seems to be going wrong, and we’ve realized, it’s okay to help others, but for once we have to help ourselves.  So I’m not giving up helping people, but right now we need to take care of us too.  We’re going to concentrate on us as a couple and us as a business.
