This will be one of the most difficult tips of all: Stop Being Sympathetic! You are not responsible for everyone and their problems/difficulties. Make wise choices when someone asks for your assistance. Instead of approaching the person, explain you will go for help. Then, find someone you trust to help assist them, or find a trained professional to help. This may be the most difficult tip to follow because we are often taught as children to be helpful and polite. Just make sure you are helping yourself stay safe first!
