Many individuals have good intentions, as they want to help people and make a difference in the lives of others. For example, some people want to help those who have issues with mental illness. However, while it's a positive thing to want to help others suffering from depression, PTSD, and other forms of mental illness, I must stress to everyone to be realistic when trying to help those with this terrible illness. Some individuals who want to help others have unrealistic goals. They think they're going to go out and save the world. Then they try helping those with mental illness for a while and they get a reality check. Don't get me wrong, there are people you can help. But then their are others you simply can't help. So when trying to make a difference in the lives of those with mental health issues, be realistic. If you have unrealistic goals, you run the risk of getting burned out trying to help others.
