…a friend told me and shook me awake.
“Urgent” news from Kenya “controlled” me for 20 years.
My attitude: “Blind actions breed toxic dependence”. Here’s my story.
Do you know that? There is only one cause and only one solution to a problem.
When I came to Germany I neglected myself & worked hard alongside my studies so that I could also take care of my family in Kenya.
From my point of view, the only cause of problems “at home” was: money. I was the “chosen one” but forgot that I earned it all.
Sounds harmless, but has enormous after-effects…
Children have grown up thinking, “Aunt Susan is here.”
That was wrong of me. I gave the impression that it was “money raining” here, that they couldn’t do anything without me.
What I learn from it:
Realizing “I am not a savior” is liberating.
“Wanting to be a savior” robs others of something valuable: to grow themselves.
This also applies to us in the company. Do you also have the #courage to say “It goes on without me?”
