Did you ever think?

Did you ever think ... that your help is more hindrance than assistance?
Did you ever think ... that if you really want to help someone you ask them what you can do; you don't tell them how everything they are doing is wrong?
Did you ever think ... that your offer of help is more about belittling the
ability of those you propose to help than any supposed altruism?
Did you ever think ... that maybe, just maybe, giving a gift and then dictating
how it is used is not as much gift-giving as it is an attempt to control the recipient?
Did you ever think ... that helping someone for the sheer glory of mentioning it
at every opportunity isn't as much about being helpful as it is megalomania?
Did you ever think ... that people don't spend time with you not because they don't care about you, but more because of how bad you choose to make them feel about themselves?
Did you ever think ... that if you had ever been a friend, you might have some?
Did you ever think ... that people that have friends might have them for a reason, not just to choose them over you?
Did you ever think ... that maybe what you think is wrong?
Did you ever think ... that being silent waiting for your turn to repeat yourself isn't the same as listening?
Did you ever tell someone you loved them just to let them know; not to prompt them to say it back?
Did you ever love someone, just for who they were, not what you wanted to make of them?
Did you ever think ... even just once?
