Audacious Compassion 002 – Don’t Mention Fish

How do you handle when people ask you for help and it’s not clear what they want? What about when you’ve tried to help them before and it hasn’t worked?

A friend of the show is troubled by “people (usually students) who ask for help, don’t change their behavior, ask for help, etc. Repeat ad infinitum. I get so frustrated! I’ve given all the advice and help I can, but I can’t just do it for them! I try not to let the frustration show, but damn.”

We also talk about Oklahoma! by Rodgers and Hammerstein and Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor.
