    • As I age, it is becoming important to me to spread happiness and valuable information to those that really need it in their lives.  We all have so much to give as individuals, and if we could get past all the negativity, just think what could be accomplished.

    • I totally agree. Even in school, because so many of my classmates are very young, I feel a sense of responsibility to mentor them. Luckily, several of the kids in class turn to me for my thoughts and even some advice. Mary, there’s a term for this, it’s one of Erik Erikson’s stages. It’s called Generativity. The whole concept of it is really neat.

    • Yes, I work with a number of coworkers who have had serious issues.  One coworker’s husband died recently after being ill for some time and another coworker’s wife is undergoing surgery which didn’t go well and now they have to operate on her again.  In both instances, I listened to them and told them I would pray for them and also asked my church to pray for them.  Prayers are so important and powerful.

    • I also feel the responsibility to mentor since I work with so many young people.  Sometimes I just listen to their problems, sometimes I try to give them some guidance.  I hope it helps.  

      Most of all I try to set an example of treating everyone with kindness and respect.

    • I’ve learned through Al-Anon....I don’t necessarily have to give advice or tell people what to do...UNLESS they ask for advice but I can share my experiences, strength and hope with them.  I can let others know WHAT I DID or DIDN‘T DO in a situation and they can take what they like and leave the rest. But I don’t feel I need to tell people WHAT TO DO...especially if they are grown.

    • There are many people out there who really need structure, and I have seen it in middle aged and seniors too..maybe some people feel strange asking for sound advice or help, but for those who don’t, it feels good to know there is someone who is there for them.heart
