Quote of the day helping hurts
Helping someone shouldn’t hurt you in return

When helping hurts is something we need to think about a lot more. This quote resonates in so many ways. Do you ever do something to help someone else (a loved one or friend, perhaps) that is way too inconvenient or costly or painful to you? We have. It is often part of the family dysfunction that accompanies substance or alcohol use disorder. It’s not selfish or cruel to help loved ones to grow up and take care of themselves.

When helping hurts is the time to learn us all to practice the words, “Sorry, no.” Actually no is a full sentence.
