As women one of our greatest gifts is our desire to care for others. It becomes a detriment when we “do for others” what they are capable of doing themselves. The biggest area is those closest to us … our significant other and children. Although it is always a beautiful thing to be kind, when we deny another the opportunity to be responsible for themselves, we send the message that they are incapable. Be aware of your motivation for “doing” and ask if they are capable themselves. If yes, choose to be responsible for you.
