Helper, don't forget to help yourself too
I'm a fixer. Now when I say "fixer" I don't mean I'm handy with a wrench. I'm the kind of person who tries to fix the emotional problems of those around me to make the world (or a dinner party) a more harmonious place. But sometimes trying to help others can wear me out emotionally, especially when it appears that my advice wasn't what they wanted after all.
