So, if you can help someone save their self from themselves, does that rescue you?

I’m not sure if that question is grammatically sound, but it is a recurrent thought that runs through my head periodically.  I know that helping others has a definite boomerang benefit.  It just feels good. Feels right.  I’m not talking about banking up karma, because I feel that you have to give because you want to.  To keep a tally of your good deeds, and expect tit-for-tat doesn’t jive.  It doesn’t work that way.

I’m just asking that if you are on that slippery slope of self-doubt and loathing, can reaching out  to help steady the guy next to you on that ledge redeem your soul?

Will that quell the voice of doubt and disgust?

How does one restore their original self?

Is it even possible?

This is the question that loops in my mind nearly non-stop.

Every.  Single.  Day.
