'To truly support people in their own growth, transformation, grief, etc., we can’t do it by taking their power away (ie. trying to fix their problems), shaming them (ie. implying that they should know more than they do), or overwhelming them (ie. giving them more information than they’re ready for).'
And that's exactly what I do. I take people's power away as often as possible.
Not intentionally; all is done with nothing more than an intention to help.
Solving other people's problems: there's nothing wrong about it, right? But I kill it. Every time.
Becoming aware of how wrong you are is very disappointing. And sad. Especially when you think of yourself as a rather good type of person, in general (with several cases of being mean-spirited, malignant, and genuinely despicable; all well-deserved).
Then again, maybe it's just a process, where you get a chance to realise you can improve if you want to. Or pretend you haven't notice. And keep doing what you're doing. With a bit of luck, you may even forget about it after a long while. Since we tend to remember only the good stuff (it's cool, it's natural; otherwise all would be completely insane. And that would be too much competition. Even for me:)
