If someone has to tell you how great they are, that’s usually a sign that they are hiding deeply rooted issues and the facade of greatness shields you from their true story.
Troubled people are not always bad people, they just need help. It can be hard to get them to allow you into their world, but when they do give you an all-access pass ensure you have the ability and time to dedicate towards really helping them. If you are not properly equipped to tackle the problem you will only cause them to withdraw from you and others and the facade of protection will only grow more elaborate.
So, read the signs accordingly and be properly prepared to adjust to changes.
Be a blessing to others and never wait for them to bless you; it will happen.
