Do you know what a bore is?

A bore is someone who when you ask them how they are, actually tells you.

So this is a big part of the problem we face when we endeavor to reach out and serve others.

People tend to yammer about their problems.

Blah blah blah I was in the hospital.

Blah blah blah I lost my job.

Sometimes we can look at another person and see their problems from a unique perspective. Have your ever thought about someone you knew who was struggling, and thought that the solutions to their problems seemed so obvious?

What would you say to this person to help them? Something blunt? Something to the point?

“Stop whining.”
“Stop being stupid.”
“Stop being lazy.”
“Get out and TRY.”
“End your toxic relationships.”

Is it possible that someone else sees YOU in the same light? What could we learn if they would tell us honestly about the problems they see in our lives?
