The Best.

"Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie." ~ William Shakespeare.

Have you ever tried to help someone? ~ Of course you have.  Wanting to help is human nature.  We initiate, inspire, and irritate ~ To help people. But what is the best help? ~ Is it found in inspiration and receiving recognition? ~ Is it in irritation, in stoking a fire that produces a flame in spite of / because of us? ~ Or is it found in something else?

Perhaps the best help isn't inspiring or irritating ~ Maybe it's invisible. The unseen, and unappreciated, hand that causes people to think...

"I did it myself".

The paradox of the best help is ~ To help without helping.
