Dream Big Kid

Just a good guy doing good

We all have that ONE friend we can call upon BUT…

… no one ever asks themselves “Who does that person call?” It is yet one more sad truth I have learned along the way, on my journey to the top. I am still on that journey. Even though most believe I have already “made it to the the top”…

They all assume that the one friend they have at the top is a person who has little or no problems. They believe the financial help they are requesting is a drop in their bucket of wealth and it won’t really matter if it gets paid back as promised, when promised. It matters, believe me it matters. Your failure to keep your word, will just make that helpful person you know a lot less likely to help the next person who asks.

Something most people do not know about money, especially people who don’t have money (and I remember hearing this when I had no money) is that it comes with a whole new set of “problems”. Alot of you just chuckled and said, “yeah right”, in your head. I didn’t believe it either when I was broke. I believe it now and I’ve experienced many new problems I never knew before. We’ll talk more about money problems another day.

So if you’re reading this and recalling that time that time you were that one friend with your hand out and trying to recall whether or not you asked “Who do you go to, can I help you, what are your problems?”, you won’t recall it, because no one EVER asks that from the person they are counting on to save them.

I am not talking asking “How are you?”, the truth about *how are you?*, the truth is nobody really gives a sh*t how you are. It’s nothing more than a pleasantry these days. It’s the same as saying “excuse me” while trying to get around someone in the grocery store. We know its BS because we don’t even answer it anymore. We answer the sane way “I’m ok”, even when we are not okay.

I also believe most people who say “I’m fine are NOT fine”. They are just living with some burden they rather not burden you with. So if you sense this, I encourage you to “dig in” to that friend. Try to get them to open up by assuring them you can be a good listener. That’s what we all need at times, someone, to “just listen” and not make any “judgments”.

I am done talking to my audience, now Tuyen I am talking only to you… 🙂

Thank you for being the first person to ask me “Do you need help?” here in Vietnam where I have already helped hundreds of people. You have helped me feel at home here in Vietnam… I hope we remain close for years to come…

It has been a long time since I bought anyone flowers, I hope you enjoy them…

And the world goes round and round…

Call your mother, tell her you love her…
