    I agree with a lot of these, but I do think that there is a line where it comes over as patronising.

    I don’t say I’m here if someone needs to talk. Experience has shown me it can leave me feeling morose and rarely helps.

    Since I walk with a cane and am slow and pokey, when someone extends the courtesy to hold a door for me, I always tell them thank you in a way that lets them know that I am thankful. Especially if children help me out, I go out of my way to thank them and tell them how much I appreciated their actions so they will go on doing them. I have heard of other disabled people COMPLAINING because someone held a door for them (not sure what part of their brain is working then) and I am astonished at them when I hear of this. They may not need the help but many of us do, so lets think about those that need help and even if you don’t be polite anyhow.

    Minny, you are missing the point.

    All emotions are shared, when you enter a room and there is laughter, you laugh without knowing why. When someone is sad, you cry with them and they feel better. When someone is afraid, you hold one another and feel more secure.

    When you listen to a friend that is sad, what you feel is empathy, you feel sad because you are sharing the emotions. The emotions that you absorbed are thus released from your friend (Not literally, but this is the end result) and in turn, you lighten the load from your friend by taking on some of their pain.

    Best
