Minute Meditation: People-Helpers Also Need Help

People-Helpers
Therapists need therapy; physicians need doctors; counselors need counseling and nurses need nursing. In other words, people-helpers, such as members of the clergy, psychiatrists and counselors, also need help and healing, for no one can escape the wounded, flawed condition of being human. To be human is to be a finite, dependent creature, and, thus, in one way or another, needing help or assistance from other humans. No human, then, is an absolutely, self-contained or self-sufficient being. However, that truth, which is obvious, is either ignored or rejected by men and women whom, when in need, are too proud to ask others for help.
