I love my role as a friend and confidant to others and I take it seriously. I treasure my ability to connect with others and fulfill their needs.
I am a wonderful friend. I take pride in maintaining the confidence of those who trust me. I spend a significant amount of time catering to their needs. It gives me great pleasure.
I am readily available when someone needs my help. But I am careful to balance that with my own needs. I realize that I can only help others when I give myself enough attention, too.
My children often need my help with resolving conflicts. I know I can help them if I spend time practicing and perfecting my conflict resolution skills.
At times I am pulled in different directions. But I am careful to take the path where I can offer the most support.
I view every need as important. I realize I can be most effective when I prioritize everyone’s needs. I spend time nurturing my relationships. I ensure that others know I am willing to offer my assistance.
Today, I continue to practice balancing my own needs with the needs of others.
I accept my role as a helper and draw strength from that responsibility. I know I am specially created to offer my kindness and support. I embrace opportunities to assist others.
