    Re: Would you help someone who refuses to help themselves?

    im used to it when it comes to my sister. she has been a diabetic ever since she was 9 and often through neglect her blood sugars have dropped to dangerous levels but being in that state she doesnt accept help. ive literally had to force food in her mouth to get her well again. i realise its not her concious decision to do this (like in the smoking case) but everyone makes mistakes and i think that without help they will just continue to do their mistakes untill something bad happens.

    I'll give it one try, but after that i also cut them off. I am only so tolerant of people who cant help themselves...if they cant pick themselves up outa the gutter no amount of help from the outside can help them...

    I try to help anyone I can, even if they won't help themselves. I just think that maybe, if you actually try really hard to help them, that sometimes they notice what you're trying to do and why you're trying, and that they'll start to help themselves. I also think that many people try to help others who won't help themselves because we have bleeding hearts, and it just won't leave us alone until we try. There's only been one case, I think, where I had given up on someone. I can only hope she'll realize what she's done and fixes it in time.

Studying is hard enough on one's own--depending on the class--so why should I make it harder on myself by helping you learn something you're refusing to learn.

    It's not even learning if you're just givin' answers away. What do the learn from something they paid no attention to in the first place? That's why I never read aloud in class as well. "Make the kids who really need the practice do it," I'd say. Some people are content with their ignorance, it seems. I mean, when you're in the 11th grade and still reading at a 3rd grade level, you really need to help yourself, because obviously, everyone else has tried and gave up.

    I think you are righ, thanks God that I'm not gonna be T.A any more
