You are the life saver!
You jump in the dark, murky waters
to save someone who is drowning
You feel connected and validated by helping others.
What happens when the person holds on to you tightly and
does not let you gasp for air despite your repeated attempts?
What happens when she/he takes you deeper under the murky waters?
How are you helping now?
Do you sink to the bottom in the spirit of helping?
Do you get loose from the person to save your own life and then return to help?
When do you decide you need to save yourself
so you can help others later?
