Need a Hand?

Need a Hand ?



"Do you need a hand with that?"
I’m sure like me, you have asked this question thousands of times. Assisting someone in need, whether it's an elderly lady struggling to carry her grocery shopping, or a dog walker who dropped his keys in the long grass, knowing you have helped someone and carried out a 'good deed' for the day is a very satisfying feeling indeed.


“Never reach out your hand unless you’re willing to extend an arm”.

~ Pope Paul VI


The honest and thoughtful quote above is a great reminder of how offering a ‘helping hand' can often involve a little more than we first anticipate. For example, the elderly lady with the heavy grocery shopping may live a few blocks further than we thought, and due to her arthritis, can only move at a slow and not so steady pace. And that dog walker who dropped his keys in the long grass isn't so sure that it was this particular patch of grass that he is standing on.


When we offer our help to a stranger, family member or work colleague it is always good to do so with a degree of flexibility. Be prepared for things taking longer or being more involved - as they often are. In the past, you have probably stretched out a hand to help a friend in need but later developed some uneasiness because in hindsight you were unable to fulfil the commitment it required. This is a situation many of us can find ourselves in. We reach out to others with the best of intentions with a hand only to find that it's not enough.



The solution is not to lose our sense of compassion and stop asking if someone 'needs a hand'. No! That would be detrimental to others AND to ourselves. What's needed here is a little thought before we stick out that hand. We need to understand that 9 times out of 10 it's really the hand with the extended arm that's needed. When you offer a helping hand, do it with the expectation that things are usually more complicated than they first appear. Why? Because by nature, we as human beings are complicated. So by all means, extend a hand or two but always have it attached to a strong and willing arm.
