I need to care less
Why do I always insist on being the hero? I hear someone say, “I need…” or “Could you help me with…” and even if I know I don’t have the time or resources, I immediately get to work in my brain on finding a way to be of service. I have this constant urge to be the one to come through and save the day when someone needs it, even if its something as simple as letting someone who seems to be in a rush go ahead of me in line or seeing tourists struggling to read a CTA map. This is why I go into work early, stay late and come in on my off days. Sometimes I wish I didn’t want to be so helpful all the time.
