The biggest gift I have is compassion for others. I share that by trying to help people.
I love working with the elderly in the assisted living homes.
Sometimes there are people who forget what a volunteer is over what an employee is and they try to make you be their assistant instead of letting you work with those you truly want to help. They think you are there to help them. These people are power-hungry individuals and they need to be assertive to feel important.
The best thing you can do is put them in their place and then contact management about the situation. Management will understand the need for volunteers.
Everyone has a gift you just need to find yours and share it and never let anyone get in your way.
