Being helpful to others while staying true to yourself can be a balancing act. The key is to be clear about your own boundaries and real motivation for offering assistance. Trying to please them so they’ll like you is different from doing something because you truly feel like helping. Understanding your reasons for acting allows you to remain in your integrity when requests are uncomfortable, inappropriate or even unhealthy. Staying true to yourself is the best way to give without feeling resentful, making others wrong or acting against your better judgment.

Balance through clarity.
