We all know the lyrics.
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me
I like helping people. In kink circles I do it often. But at work, nowhere nearly as much. I have this co-worker they're struggling to learn something new. I've been giving them some guidance for a week or two.
Honestly, it hasn't felt like it was enough help. But I was wrong. Today we sat together, and I showed them this one particular something they had been struggling to understand. I watched as they went from bewildered to got it .
Then we had this awesome chat exchange.
Me: Excellent!$co-worker, I’m thrilled. I feel like you’ve made a big jump forward.It’s starting to click for you, isn’t it?
$ co-worker: Yes, thanks to your help and guidance
Me: Awww, thanks.
Man, helping someone else is the best feeling.
