Help Yourself

On my way home I was listening to “Help Yourself” by Amy Winehouse. There is a lyric in that song that keeps replaying in my mind.

I can’t help you if you won’t help yourself.

As a society, we tend to want so much while offering little to nothing in return. I don’t understand where this sense of entitlement comes from.

We create problems or get ourselves into situations and we expect someone to come down from the mountain and lend a hand.

What have you done to help yourself? Anything? You can’t possibly be upset when nobody extends a hand if you haven’t at least made an attempt.

Just a thought.
