“You re not doing anyone any favors by imposing suffering upon yourself. And yet, we see people willingly and purposefully do this all the time. What on earth is going on? Where does it say that self-sabotage will help another? Won t you then have two people suffering instead of one? Think of other ways in which you can serve which do not involve harming yourself. If your efforts to help others, are hurting you, find a different way. This is not the right way. No one would want such a sacrifice from you. What kind of gift is that to give? How would you expect people to receive it? With joy? If you re going to do anything, do it because you want to. Do it because you love to. Or don t do it at all. Seriously!”
