I felt so deflated and I’ve got to be honest... my feelings were hurt.
I’d never given a thought to the fact I would be rejected. I just wanted to help.
I had all the right experience.
I had been a Samaritan for 5 years many years ago and I’d worked as a Spiritual Healer for thirty years. Thirty years of listening to peoples troubles.
Being a Samaritan taught me how to listen properly, really listen to what a person said because someone’s life might depend on me really hearing the words spoken.
But no....I wasn’t wanted.
Why you might ask?
Becasue I am to old.........
Apparently I’m to old to sit at the telephone and have a chat to someone !!!
No one over the age of 70 was allowed to volunteer....yet common sense dictates that the older you are, the more experience of life you have.......
So the only way I could think of to try and help, was to put my first book out for free for a week.
94 people took up my offer, I was hoping for a hundred, so it got very close to my target.
So sad I wasn’t allowed to help, I would have been very happy giving someone a call at least once a week for a chat.
That’s all for now folks....
